Tai Chi/Qigong

Tai Chi and Qigong with Amalia

Qigong is an umbrella term that covers movement, meditations, visualizations and breathing exercises that help us sense and train our life energy (Qi). When there is an abundant flow of Qi we are vital and harmonious and can navigate the continuous changes in our life with grace. We are coming into Autumn, the phase of Metal in the Qigong system. The Metal phase is a time of condensing - extracting what we can from the earth energy of late summer and letting go of what cannot be kept. We will explore the many aspects of the Metal Phase in meditation, visualization and movement Qigongs.

Pickleball

Pickleball has arrived in East Haddam! You may ask, what in the world is pickleball? It is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. It combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It can be played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. It is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes that looks similar to a wiffleball. Come check it out and play in our gym on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:30am-11:30am. Thursday evenings 6:30-6:30pm and Sundays 4-6pm. We provide all equipment. Ages 18 and older. Drop in fee is $5/day. Or you can purchase a Pickleball Club Card - 10 games for $40.
