Tai Chi Wellness Program

Every Tuesday and Thursday
1:30PM to 2:30PM Pacific Daylight Time
Soundview Center
432 Third Street
Langley WA

Tai Chi is a series of slow, graceful martial arts movements, called a form, which is continuously flowing, always the same, gradually gaining in complexity, taking 15 – 20 minutes to complete. Students learn by following with the assistance of verbal cues. Accessible to a wide range of physical ability, Tai chi promotes strong body awareness, strengthening balance, coordination, concentration, healthy breathing, posture, core strength and flexibility. Practicing the graceful flow of Tai Chi also creates a meditative interlude from the thoughts of every day life. There is very little attention given to martial arts; It’s all in the form. This class is free; donations are gratefully accepted.

Stan Hiserman taught Tai Chi at three locations as a volunteer for about twenty years in Seattle. He is now teaching it twice a week at Soundview Center in addition to this Kung Fu class.


Mindfulness Meditation

Fourth Monday of each month

Healing Circles Langley

This circle offers an opportunity to meditate with others in person. There will be a short talk at the beginning, guidance on how to meditate, a meditation period, and time to share about your meditation experience at the end. No experience is necessary, and everyone is welcome.

Kung Fu Wellness Program

Every Monday and Wednesday
1:00PM to 2:00PM Pacific Daylight Time
Soundview Center
432 Third Street
Langley WA

These Kung Chi Fu exercises follow the same sequence that Stan Hiserman practiced and assisted teaching at the Seattle Kung Fu Club six hours a week for more than twelve years. The practice is now at a slower pace and with fewer repetitions, making it suitable for all ages and abilities. It’s an accessible energizing form of exercise with no contact and low impact on sensitive joints. Kung Fu exercises build strength, endurance, balance, concentration, flexibility, and hand-eye-body coordination along with chi, our internal healing energy.
