Your instructor is Holistic Specialist Christine UcichAfter studying the Chinese healing & martial arts of tai chi, qi gong & kung fu, Christine Ucich came to Taoist Yoga as a way to cultivate stillness through meditation. She enjoys the silence of this meditative yoga practice and the time it allows in letting practitioners find that deeper connection between mind & body. Having practiced several yogas including hatha, ashtanga and kundalini, Christine chooses to teach this practice because of its emphasis on combining internally-focused breath meditation with postures. Certified as an instructor in 2004 and a senior instructor in 2013, she studies directly under Taoist Master Hyunmoon Kim, founder of SunDo International which is an organization with several schools in the US, Canada and Europe.  

Additional parking for evening and weekend library events is available in the East Haven Town Hall parking lot across the street from the library or in the Stop and Shop lot behind the library, accessible from Messina Drive.
