The movements and philosophy of Tai Chi teach people to relax, slow down, coordinate their mind and body, and improve postures.  Studies have proven that Tai Chi greatly reduces the risk of falling, improves arthritis, posture, strengthens your body, lowers blood pressure, lowers stress, and helps with circulation problems. New studies have shown that the practice of Tai Chi helps with osteoporosis, and lessens the occurrences of shingles. Many physicians are now recommending the practice of Tai Chi as effective pain management for chronic pain sufferers. Call the Senior Center at  245-7253 for more information.
