T’ai Chi Chi is rooted in Ancient Yin Yang principles and in T’ai Chi Ch’uan, Qi Gong concepts. It is composed of 19 easy-to-learn movements and one pose. T’ai Chi Chih focuses on improvement of circulation & coordination, metabolism, cultivation of longevity, stress reduction, and mind & body energy. No special clothing or
equipment is required, and no special physical abilities are required, either—even those who need to sit can do it. Movements are done slowly and gently.

Bio: Neena is administrative assistant with the Total Wellness Center (Natural Health Care) in Camillus and holds dual certifications as Public Librarian and School Library Media Specialist. Neena discovered T’ai Chi Chih®; Joy of Movement—a great stress reducer—and became a certified instructor in 1997. She is also a certified instructor of Seijaku, an advanced form of T’ai Chi Chih. She has taught T’ai Chi Chih throughout the greater Syracuse area for over fifteen years.
