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
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.
