Get in Shape, Stay in Shape, Keep Moving

Here are just a few of the classes we offer:

Chair Tai Chi

Chair Tai Chi

Tai chi is a gentle exercise that improves balance and reduces fall risk.

It consists of making slow, graceful movements while breathing deeply. It’s relatively easy to follow because the movements are done so slowly. Seated tai chi is a great exercise option for frail seniors or those with limited mobility. It helps older adults get the health and wellness benefits of tai chi without the fall risk. Studies find that tai chi also improves flexibility, immune system, sleep, happiness, sense of self-worth, strength, cardiovascular endurance, concentration, and more. All that’s needed is a sturdy chair, so it’s easy to do these routines in the comfort and convenience of home.
