Silver Sneakers accepted with this class. This class is suitable for all ages and abilities, but is ideal for people struggling with balance, who have experienced a fall, or have a fear of falling. Tai chi is a mind-body exercise, which improves the serenity and relaxation of the mind and thus reduces pain and stress. This ancient Chinese martial art consists of slowly executed postures. Through gentle movements, Tai Chi improves muscular strength, flexibility and fitness, which ultimately supports joints, improves balance, and prevents falls. Each class teaches and incorporates the principles of meditation and gentle motion. Class starts and ends seated in a chair, and the balance portion is performed either seated or standing.
