CHAIR YOGA is a 12-week exercise program offering easy to do poses including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures used for health and relaxation.  No prior knowledge of yoga is necessary.  Classes are Wednesdays from 11:00am - 12:00pm starting on January 17, 2018 at the Bauer Community Center in Taylor Park.  REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY.  There is a $64 fee for the 12-week session.  

TAI CHI is a gentle six-week exercise program suitable for most people. It has been shown to improve balance and reduce stress.   Sun style Tai Chi is a series of gentle, graceful movements linked together in a continuous, smooth-flowing sequence.  Each session consists of warm-up energy exercises, called qigong, to loosen joints and improve energy circulation.

The Sun style TAI CHI class taught by an Arthritis Foundation certified instructor will be held at the Bauer Community Center in Taylor Park on Tuesdays from 10:30am - 11:30am starting on January 9.  There is a $27 fee for the 6-week session. 

TAI CHI CHIH will be offered in a 12-week session to senior citizens on Thursdays starting on January 25 at 10:30am.  Tai Chi Chih helps by circulating and balancing the essential inner energy.  Known to its practitioners as "the effort of no effort," Tai Chi Chih differs from the recognized tai chi styles as it is not a martial art; however, it is based on similar principles.  There are stand alone gentle flowing movements performed in repetition that makes up a meditative form of exercise to which practitioners attribute physical, personal and spiritual health benefits.  There is a $54 fee for the 12-week session. 

Registration forms for the above programs are available at the Customer Service Department at Millburn Town Hall, the Bauer Community Center in Taylor Park or on the Millburn Township website twp.millburn.nj.us/seniordocuments.  Please contact the Office of the Senior Citizens Coordinator for any questions for the above programs at 973-564-7091 or jhawkins@millburntwp.org.
