These pictures were taken on Sept 7, 2010 at Thompson Rec. Most of these women practiced the beginner Chinese Yoga for about a year before the Intermediate class was introduced. Some of these students have been practicing tai chi and qigong with Laddie for 10 (ten) years, since the classes were introduced to Thompson Rec Dept.
In the below photo, Sue Johnson, who was hiding in the first picture, is given assistence by her class partners in taking the one legged posture “Connect to Heaven”. Partner assistence is used in the class to help students find range of motion improvements without strain.
