T’ai Chi Chih Classes offered The Valley Hospital will present courses on T’ai Chi Representatives of West Bergen Mental Healthcare and Saint Elizabeth’s Church in Ridgewood, met recently to discuss plans for The Chrysalis Program, a new parent education and support program geared to teen mothers and their children and housed at St. Elizabeth’s Church. “Being a parent is a tough job,” said Program Coordinator Amy Barr. “For many teen mothers, parenting is a job they are struggling to cope with alone. Many lack peer, family and community support. In addition, community resources for this group are hard to find and rarely tailored to the special learning needs and challenges of teen mothers.” The Chrysalis Program offers teen mothers a support network of professionals and peers in which to learn and grow with their child. Teen mothers, whether pregnant or post-partum, are eligible to participate. Program services include a weekly series of parentChih for beginners at the Luckow Pavilion in Paramus. Courses will begin Tuesday, June 30 at 4:30 p.m. and 6:15 p.m., and Thursday, July 2, at 9:30 a.m. Intermediate-level classes will start Tuesday, June 30, at 1 p.m. (class meets at 2 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month), and Thursday, July 2, at 4:15 p.m. The intermediate classes are designed for those who have completed the beginners’ program. All classes are eight sessions and the cost is $60. Each class is one hour and 15 minutes in length. Call (201) 6345359 to register or for more information. The courses are taught by Dorene Krause, an accredited T’ai Chi Chih instructor.
