[LIBERTY] – Anyone interested in learning beginner’s Tai Chi is invited to a free “Celebrating Sullivan Spaces” class on Saturday, July 29 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on the Main Street Stage in LaPolt Park located at 119 North Main Street in Liberty. The class will be hosted by Sullivan Renaissance and Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County.
Tai chi is a low impact form of exercise that originated in China. “Tai chi helps strengthen internal muscles, increases balance, improves posture and reduces stress,” says Bonnie Lewis, RN Dependent Care Educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County. “The practice is beneficial for mind, body and spirit.” Mrs. Lewis is a Certified Tai Chi for Arthritis Instructor and will be leading the class.
This is the third and final event of the 2017 “Celebrating Sullivan Spaces” campaign, which promotes education and community engagement in Sullivan County’s public spaces. The gardens in LaPolt Park are cared for by Town of Liberty Parks & Recreation employees as well as community volunteers.
Pre-registration is required for this program as class size is limited. To RSVP and to learn more about upcoming community events and volunteer opportunities in Liberty, or contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit SullivanRenaissance.org.
