Healthy Steps for Older Adults
Tuesdays & Thursdays: 11:00 AM to 11:30 PM
Adults aged 50+ and adults of any age with a disability are invited to participate in this fun, socially engaging 4-hour interventional class. A fall screening and assessment is provided, as well as education on how to reduce the incidence of falls. Participants can learn the common causes of falls, identify and problem solve barriers to change, and other fall awareness skills. Frequent breaks are provided and class participants learn a wide range of physical activities they can do at home to help improve strength and balance to reduce the risk of falls.
Tai Chi for Arthritis
Tuesdays & Fridays: 11:30 AM to 12:00 PM
T’ai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art. The gentle exercise form consists of making slow, graceful movements with guidance by the instructor. Many who practice T’ai Chi have noticed balance and flexibility improvements, knee and back pain relief, increased breathing capacity, enhanced mental focus, and a significant reduction in stress and anxiety.
There is no charge for T’ai Chi classes for our members. Be sure to consult with your doctor or health care provider about whether T’ai Chi is right for you and learn more about the potential benefits of this deeply relaxing practice. Then, join us. The joy of T’ai Chi awaits you.
