Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art which is a gentle form of mindful, relaxing exercise and stretching involving movements performed in a slow, focused manner. Studies have shown Tai Chi as being one of the most effective approaches for preventing falls in the older population through improving balance, confidence and muscular strength. There is no experience necessary for this beginner-level class. Standing and seated options available. Wear sturdy shoes, such as sneakers, and bring water.
