This past weekend, Discover Main Street Clarence paid a visit to the Clarence Hollow Wellness Center (10946 Main Street) to witness Denise Miller’s T’ai Chi Chih class. There was a very pleasant group who participated in the Saturday morning class. It was the final class on a multi-week schedule.
The confines of the Wellness Center are an inviting and relaxing place to focus on personal health. The building was a previously a church and has many of the characteristics of it’s former purpose: high ceilings, hard-wood floors, a balcony and more. With some serene music playing in the back ground Ms. Miller led her class through a relaxing series of movements. At times, the group move in-sync, with their eyes closed – almost in a meditative state. The whole room just felt…relaxed, which is kinda hard to find in today’s fast paced world.
