Join staff from veteran-owned Dao Concepts for a series created exclusively for Military Veterans and family members to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle! This series takes place outdoors and promotes overall wellness through the practice of Yang Style Tai Chi, an ancient Chinese art that blends exercise with stress reduction. Each week will include a warmup, followed by low-impact Tai Chi movements necessary to learn the 16 Step Yang Style Form. This series is a unique opportunity to focus on both the body and mind, as you are outdoors surrounded by both art and nature. No experience needed. Admission to GFS is included, so feel free to enjoy the grounds!
