The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program is offering two free workshops for breast cancer survivors on tai chi and on guided imagery and meditation.
The workshop on tai chi, an ancient Chinese exercise, is scheduled from 7 to 8:30 p.m. April 11. Through gentle movements and deep breathing, the body becomes more relaxed, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. The class is to be taught by Dorothy Scott, an instructor and practitioner of tai chi at Clark Botanical Gardens in Albertson. Participants are asked to bring comfortable clothing, shoes and bottled water.
The Guided Imagery and Meditation workshop is scheduled from 7 to 8:30 p.m. April 30. A variety of imagery and relaxing meditations will be discussed and explored. The class is to be taught by Megan Burt, an advanced practice holistic nurse and integral nurse wellness coach with more than 35 years of experience in nursing.
There is no cost to attend the workshops, which are to meet at Adelphi University School of Social Work, 1 South Ave. in Garden City, but preregistration is required. For information, call 516-877-4325.
