Description:   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 and Times:  The classes will be offered over 20 sessions.

Mondays and Fridays from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, beginning February 11th, 2019.

Tai Chi for Arthritis Part 2 will also be offered on Mondays from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, beginning February 11th. Prior experience is required.
