09:00 – 10.00 Chi Gong / Tai chi with Clarissa Fontana
Some of the best exercises you could possibly do; this training warms up and stretches the muscles, tendons ligaments and joints all over the body, massages internal organs, increases and improves circulation and provides an aerobic workout. It also improves ones balance, helps establish a feeling of wakefulness and gives energy. We are fortunate to have Clarissa Fontana, Tai Chi Senior Instructor as coach and guide for these sessions.
