Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Tai Chi involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. This 8-week class has both physical and mental benefits. If done regularly, it improves muscle tone, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Many older people find that it boosts their energy, stamina, agility, sharpens their reflexes, and gives an overall sense of well-being.
Registration required by: 9/20
