Tai Chi for Health
A program of gentle exercise offered by Social Circle United Methodist Church
When: Tuesdays at 11:00 am
Where: Church Fellowship Hall
Attire: Comfortable Clothing
Starts: January 13, 2015
Tai Chi for Health activities make use of the research-based Tai Chi for Arthritis program developed for the Arthritis Foundation. This activity has been shown to reduce the need for medicine among people with arthritis. It also improves mobility and balance and often results in a sense of well-being.
The program will start with seated activities and move to standing activities. Both seated and standing Tai Chi gently exercise the entire body. Participants are often surprised at how their muscles tighten, even with seated activities.
The instructor, Irene Goetze, is certified by the Tai Chi for Health Institute and has been teaching Tai Chi for two years.
