Hi, I’m Josy Delaney
Certified Tai Chi Instructor
I became certified in the Tai Chi for Health Institute’s Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention course in 2015, and the Taiji Fit program in 2020. I taught Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention at the Malone Adult Center for four years, prior to the pandemic.
Tai Chi has enriched my life on so many levels – especially physically and mentally. When I first learned – and started playing (yes, that’s what it’s called!) and teaching Tai Chi – my focus was on the physical movements. The slow, gentle moves are so peaceful, and based on nature – stand rooted like a tree, bend gently like tall grasses in the breeze, flow like water… I developed a deeper awareness of how I move, how I breathe.
Then over time, I realized the mental impact of Tai Chi – for example, better focus and concentration, feeling an inner calm more often, the mind-set of “go with the flow” – a different way of looking at my life experiences.
