Youth & Adult Programs

Tofino Parks & Recreation, Fall 2007


Tofino Parks & Recreations youth & adult programs for Fall 2007. These programs are for youths and adults and run from September to early December, 2007.

Stretch/Tai Chi Chuan

Tofino’s Community Hall
Instructor: Robert Love
Mondays • 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm
For any age! • Free!

This Stretch/Tai-Chi class is geared for adults with different levels of fitness. The first part of the class will be stretching and gentle strengthening exercises, the second part will be Tai-Chi Chuan (Wu Style).

Tai-Chi Chuan is one of the best means to preserve health and strengthen general physique. The postures exercise the whole body, including internal organs, sharpen the mind, enhance flexibility and coordination as well as improve circulation. The characteristics of Tai Chi are calm, relaxed, agile, arc like and balanced.

This class is an offshoot of the Monday and Wednesday Stretch Tai Chi for Seniors, however this class is open to all ages, rather than specifically aimed at seniors.
