Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.
Tai Chi for Health is designed to improve balance, relieve pain, build confidence, and improve the quality of life! Each session includes warmups, learning 1-2 forms, and cool-downs. The class continues weekly on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm for 8 weeks ending on Tuesday, March 7th. Class is limited to the first 20 participants. Please call Carla Hover from Yavapai County Community Health Services at 928-442-5966 for more information and to register for the class. (This class is currently closed and full, but you can contact Carla Hover at 928-442-5966 to be added to the waiting list for the next class.)
