Quality of Life

  1. Tai Chi Chuan

    July 12, 2022, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
    @

    Albert Johnson Park

    The Tai Chi Chuan form comprises a series of slow movements flowing from one to the next. Tai Chi was created to improve health, meditation, and self-defense. The movements are done slowly and calmly. The emphasis is on relaxation, correct posture, and the efficient use of muscles. Studies have shown that Tai Chi can help lower blood pressure and improve balance, coordination, and flexibility. It teaches stress management and basic self-defense, and conflict management skills. The class will be learning Professor Cheng Man-Ching’s 37-posture Tai Chi Chuan form. The instructor, Steven Haydu, has over thirty years of experience practicing and teaching Tai Chi Chuan.

  2. Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series

    July 12, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    @
    Railroad Museum

    Bring a lunch and enjoy a history lecture. Before the arrival of the railroad in 1881, the U.S. government authorized a series of overland mail companies to transport passengers and postal mail to California by way of southern New Mexico. These transportation lines, including the Butterfield Overland Mail and the San Antonio-San Diego Mail Line, marked the first-time southern New Mexico was connected to the west coast. It also brought new travelers to the borderlands. Though only active for a few short years, these mail lines were vital to the development of the Mesilla Valley in the years leading up to the Civil War. Alexandra McKinney is the instructional coordinator at the Taylor-Mesilla Historic Property and Fort Selden Historic Site. She has a bachelor's degree in education from the University of New Mexico and a master's degree in public history from the University of West Florida. You can also join by zoom. Email education@las-cruces.org for the zoom link.
