Hotel History Tour - Tuesday, May 5, 2020, 5:00-6:00 pm
Sponsored by NHAPSC
Join the walking tour and step back into the Gilded Age with a stroll through the early 20th Century when the men wore suits with top hats or bowlers and the women dressed in their finest gowns with huge, broad brimmed hats as they paraded along the long Veranda of the Mount Washington Hotel observing the highest mountains of the northeast that surround this grand estate. Learn the stories of the people who have built, lived and visited here during the last 100 years - in the last of the grand hotels that once filled New Hampshire’s north country. You may even feel (or perhaps see) the ghosts of the past as you stroll through New England’s largest wooden structure and like those before you, you will never forget the sights and beauty of the Mount Washington Hotel. In fact, as some have reported, you may never leave this grand place.

Aqua Tai Chi (Ai Chi) - Thursday, May 7, 2020, 6:30-7:15 am
Sponsored by Shires Housing
Taught in the indoor pool area at the Omni, Ai Chi will aim to strengthen lower extremities, trunk and back muscles by using water’s resistance to improve muscular strength and endurance. In addition, we incorporate the inherit properties of the principles of Tai Chi and Qi Gong to enhance, develop and expand the mind-body connection. This class is for everyone as water’s buoyancy and three dimensional resistance allows people to move in ways that can help best meet their individual fitness needs and prepare their body for daily activities.
Aqua Tai Chi is practiced in the water because it provides several benefits:
Water supports our body’s weight making exercising easier and more relaxing.
Water provides gentle resistance to movement which eases strain on tender joints and gently develops muscle strength.
Water helps us learn certain healthful breathing techniques
