Tai Chi with Françoise
Every Tuesday morning, patients who come to the Espace Mieux-Etre can benefit from a weekly one-hour tai-chi session. The classes are taught by Françoise and take place outside in a calm and peaceful atmosphere, which is conducive to rekindling strength and energy.
What is tai-chi?
It is overall energy-focused exercise which involves making a series of slow, precise, continuous, and circular movements in a set order.
The extremely slow movements help to detect blockages and to feel the energy flow. In addition, awareness of transferring the weight of the body, in a slow and precise manner, from one leg to the other and the interplay of the arms and legs perfectly capture the Chinese philosophy based on the dynamic balance of the Yin and Yang forces. This practice also places focus on breathing which must be slow, deep and regular.
Each session begins with warm-up and flexibility exercises for twenty or so minutes. Then the teacher may include a few Qi Gong moves to rebalance body posture and to channel energy. The rest of the session consists of learning the tai chi movements and carrying them out slowly in sequence.

Become a volonteer
Volunteering is a commitment, a well-thought-out decision, a desire which matures deep within you, and which one day takes on a special meaning. (more…)
The Association’s activities are many - to listen and to help cancer patients and their families in particular. We need dedicated members and volunteers to provide them with all the comfort necessary.
