Someone snapped this photo of me (in yellow) giving a demonstration in “Exercise as Medicine” last night at the New York Open Center. It was wonderful to share my passion with so many. Next week, the five week class begins on Wednesday evening at 6-7:15. There will be no class on September 26. I will be teaching simple skills that anyone can use to bring themselves into a better state of mind, uplift the spirit and benefit the body. To register, call 212 219 2527 x2.
Someone commented on the age range of the class—from high school age to senior. At the end of the hour and 15 minutes, it was good to hear the positive feedback. A girl from Brooklyn Technical High School told me when she arrived she was “so tense” and then “completely relaxed” at the end. She said it was an “amazing experience” and looked like a different person on her way out. That was my goal, to give those attending a taste of what this thousands of years old healing martial art can do for us today. If we can create peace within ourselves, well, isn’t that where it all begins?
