The Benson Center for Active Aging offers Tai Chi for Arthritis FREE for anyone 50 and up.

Numerous studies have shown Tai Chi improves muscular strength, flexibility, fitness, improves immunity, relieves pain, and improves quality of life. Muscle strength is important for supporting and protecting joints and is essential for normal physical function. Flexibility exercises enable people to move more easily, and facilitate circulation of body fluid and blood, which enhance healing. Fitness is important for overall functioning of the heart, lungs, and muscles. In addition to these components, Tai Chi movements emphasize weight transference to improve balance and prevent falls.

Dates:   20 weeks (2 x week), Tuesdays and Thursdays, next session will start in December 2018 and goes through March 2018.

Time:   11:00 am – 12:00 Noon
