The GROOVE is an incredibly easy dance experience where you don't need to worry about following the steps or a leader. Everyone unites on very basic movements, and everyone makes those movements unique and their own!

Through creativity and community, the GROOVE is really just like an epic dance party! GROOVE focuses on expressing the whole self! Not only is it a great workout for the body, but the brain joins in the party through creativity and self-expression, and the being is satisfied through mindful practices, stillness, and breathing.

Tai-chi Ch’uan – Supreme Ultimate Boxing Classes

Instructor: Juio Cortes

Wednesdays: 4:30 – 6 PM

T'ai-chi ch'uan, also known as Supreme Ultimate Boxing, is a Chinese martial art that is over three hundred fifty years old. When things were different and fighting was a real consideration in China, it was considered one of the nation’s premiere martial art forms, due to its simple, effective, and powerful movements and practices.

That being said, it is also a very complex form of neigong, or internal energy cultivation exercise that increases concentration, flexibility and vitality. As this amazing art became popular, its health benefits became better known and its martial focus became de-emphasized. Now it is practiced almost exclusively as a path to health. It has been even used clinically by medical practitioners in China as a form of treatment for chronic ailments (arthritis, asthmas, skin conditions, chronic fatigue) and serious diseases (cancers, organ dysfunctions, Alzheimer’s, etc.), with some amazing results.

In this class, traditional T’ai Chi Ch’uan forms will be taught, including the martial, philosophical and neigong aspects. Students will learn how to stand, breathe and move as efficiently as possible. In addition, they will learn effective techniques for defending themselves against the three dangers of life (age, illness and stress) while learning ways to strengthening the body and mind. In the process they will gain a greater awareness of themselves and learn how to relax the mind and calm the emotions, with an eye on being able to flow better with and enjoy life.  Space is limited for this class, therefore preregistration is a must.
