University Recreation To Offer
Chinese 18 Postures, Acu-Yoga, Tai-Chi 

MAILED: Jan. 18, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Recreation will offer Wednesday night classes on Chinese 18 postures, acu-yoga and tai chi.
         Chinese 18 postures is a series of gentle stretching and breathing postures to help resolve and avoid stiffness and achy muscles. Participants will learn to strengthen and lubricate joints and improve their posture and balance. The class is from 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays, Feb. 6-March 13, in Room 106 of McPhee Physical Education Center. Course fee is $22 for UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff and $37 for community residents.
         Tai chi, offered from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Feb. 6-April. 17 (no class March 27), in the McPhee Dance Studio, will develop and maintain the health of both the mind and the body. The slow rhythmical circularity of the movements establishes a calm mind and a relaxed body, capable of neutralizing the mental and physical stresses which often result in "disease." Course fee is $45 for UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff and $70 for community residents.
         A blend of traditional hatha yoga postures, breathing focus, and access to the acupressure and acupuncture points is utilized in the practice of acu-yoga. Body, mind and spirit are all addressed in this three-in-one yoga class, offered from 5 to 6:15 p.m. Wednesdays, Feb. 6-March 6, in the McPhee Dance Studio. Course fee is $22 for UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff and $37 for community residents.
