Placitas Community Center closed temporarily

The Placitas Community Center (PCC) has been forced to close temporarily because of water well problems. PCC director Janice Mortenson said that drilling a new well will begin in the first week of October and will hopefully be finished shortly thereafter. The PCC is also installing new flooring. The new addition has been delayed by contractor problems, but has started again, and should be finished by November.

Meanwhile, the PCC will transport seniors to the Bernalillo Senior Center for meals and activities. For further information, call the Center at 867-1396.

Placitas Community Center offers T’ai Chih

T’ai Chi Chih (meaning joy through movement) is a series of nineteen movements and one pose that together make up a moving meditation that balances the vital energy within us, which the Chinese call chi. It improves balance and flexibility, and most people who practice T’ai Chi Chih regularly report that they feel both calmer and more energized.

The Placitas Community Center will be offering beginning and intermediate T’ai Chi Chih classes this fall, for a fee of $40 for each eight-week session.

Beginning classes will be held Thursdays from October 18 through December 13 (no class Thanksgiving week) from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. In these classes, students will learn ten to twelve movements and can begin practicing a modified version of the form after the second or third class. The first day of the beginning class on October 18 is a demonstration and introduction to the form. Anyone interested in T’ai Chi Chih is welcome.

Intermediate classes will be held on Tuesdays from October 16 through December 11 (no class Thanksgiving week) from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. In these classes, students will learn the advanced movements not taught in the beginning series and can refine their practice.

Contact Janice Mortensen at 867-1396 for directions to the Center, or Adrienne Phillips, certified T’ai Chi Chih instructor, at 328-7431 for information about T’ai Chi Chih.
