SUMMIT, NJ – Holly Sweeney-Hillman, Director of the Tai Chi Academy of Northern New Jersey, will lead a program entitled, “Tai Chi: What’s in a Name?” which will be held at SAGE Eldercare, 290 Broad Street, Summit, on Tuesday, March 6 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.  The discussion will focus on understanding the historical development of Tai Chi and the unique benefits it offers. 

“SAGE has been hosting Tai Chi classes for local seniors because research shows that the movements improve balance, bone density, arthritis symptoms, immune function, mental acuity and cardiovascular fitness.  This is very beneficial with the elderly as a means of preventing falls and injuries,” stated Julie Reich, Director of Special Programs for SAGE.  “Many students begin Tai Chi to enjoy health benefits and find themselves in love with the beauty and tranquility of the movements, the social pleasure of practicing with other students, and the on-going challenge of mastering a complex and fascinating art,” added Ms. Sweeney-Hillman.

Ms. Sweeney-Hillman also serves as Director for the International Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association, which has thousands of members worldwide, overseeing teaching and training standards for instructors and judges.  She has been active with the Yang Family Association since 1995 when she began her studies with Grand Master Yang Zhenduo and his grandson, 5th and 6th generation Master Yang Jun.  She was appointed a Center Director in 2002 and earned Golden Tiger Rank in 2006.
