    “Meditation in Motion” is the title of a presentation to be given at the Emerald Coast Meditation Society Nov. 20 by Anita Kurz, a fitness instructor for 30 years.

    The free meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King Episcopal Church, 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and does not follow any religion.

    Instead of the usual format which begins with a meditation, Kurz will begin by leading the group in the eight essential movements, a form of Chi Kung (also known as chi gong). These movements help relax the mind which then helps to relax the body. After Kurz responds to questions, the group will do its usual 30-minute silent meditation.

    Kurz, who grew up on Long Island, has lived in this area since 1979. She has taught aerobics and tap dancing and been a personal trainer. Currently, in addition to Chi Kung (or Enerchi, as she calls it), she teaches tai chi and a new class titled, “Older but…Better,” designed for older folks who want to begin a fitness program but may be intimidated by the idea of going to a gym. It includes cardiovascular fitness, strength training and flexibility. All classes are taught at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville.

    Kurz holds a bachelor’s degree from Wellesley College, a certificate for fitness instructors from UCLA, and a master’s degree in exercise science from the U.S. Sports Academy. She is married with three children.

    The ECMS meets on the first and third Thursday of every month except July and August. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. For information contact Nancy James, nancyjames@[URL="http://embarqmail.com/"]embarqmail.com[/URL][URL="http://embarqmail.com/"].[/URL]
