March 8th Release of Forever Young Tai Chi DVD: 

Filmed at the intermediate class in Casa Grande, Forever Young Tai Chi will be released on March 8, 2016. Twenty Tai Chi enthusiasts from this weekly class sponsored by Arizona Priority Care filmed this 52 minute DVD with me. It is comprised of four sections: Posture & Breathing, Qigong, Balance Exercises and Tai Chi Flow, which includes four sequences. Practice at your convenience with my third DVD using your television/DVD player or computer. It will be available at any of my classes or on my website for $20 starting March 8th. A HUGE thank you to Cindy, Ellie, Dianne, Robert, Jackie, Susy, Randy, Kathy, Diane, Bernadette, Bev, Barbara, Bridget, Roberta, Tom, Gloria, Becky, Diana, Ursula and Candi for creating this flowing and balancing practice!

Kim’s Favorite New Products:

– Organic Chicken Bone Broth, 6 cartons at 32 oz/1 qt each for $16.99 at Costco

– Lima Beans for Protein: 7.3 g per ½-cup serving (cooked) – freezer case at Fry’s Supermarket.

Good news: In addition to filling protein, lima beans contain the amino acid leucine, which may play a big role in healthy muscle synthesis among older adults.
