Tai chi is an ancient Chinese martial art that involves fluid, coordinated movements of the legs, arms, and torso. This is the gentle Sun Style tai chi that improves balance, posture, and coordination. All practices are done while standing and no special equipment is needed (except supportive shoes); if the participant is unsteady or not feeling well, the movements can be done while sitting in a chair.
This free program runs twice a week for 8-weeks and practices are for one-hour.
• TCA is for everyone, not just people with arthritis.
