Wellness & Lifestyle Services: Tai Chi Classes


About Our Tai Chi Classes

Tai Chi is described by the Harvard Medical School as "medication in motion," due to its many health and well-being benefits for individuals of all ages and abilities. Tai Chi is a low-impact physical and mental practice that consists of slow, circular movements. Meant to be practiced regularly to receive its full benefits, Tai Chi can be easily adapted to meet your unique mobility and fitness needs. Regular Tai Chi practice has been shown to improve balance, cognitive functioning, blood pressure, and even alleviate arthritic pain. Its mental health benefits include stress reduction and improved concentration. 

We welcome you to learn about these weekly practices, meet our instructors, and join our community!
