Tai Chi for Arthritis and Falls Prevention

Mar 3
Saturday 11:00 am
Join us at the South Side Library for a Tai Chi class with instructor Paul Black. This class will specialize in arthritis and falls prevention, and can be done standing or seated. The program is beginner friendly and requires no experience with Tai Chi.

Tai Chi is a holistic form of exercise that promotes flowing movements and mind/body harmony. Tai Chi is sometimes called a "moving meditation"; as participants concentrate on doing the movements they often forget about their normal, every day concerns. Tai Chi is a slower paced, non-contact martial arts movement.
