 Tai Chi – Mondays at 12:30pm

Experience the benefits of this ancient Chinese exercise regime.  Mondays at 1pm.

Balance is important to help you perform many of your daily activities and prevent falls. In Tai Chi, which is sometimes called “moving meditation,” you work to improve your balance by moving your body slowly, gently, and precisely, while breathing deeply. Other benefits from practicing tai chi include: improvements in bone and heart health, easing of pain and stiffness from osteoarthritis, better sleep and improvements in overall wellness.
