Tai Chi consists of slow continuous whole-body movements, strung together in a form. Like dance, the movements are learned and follow one after the other. 

The Tai Chi for Arthritis program was developed as a safer, more effective form to have an emphasis on improving health. Medical studies have shown that practicing this program reduces pain, prevents falls for the elderly, and improves many aspects of health. Tai Chi for Arthritis has been recommended by the CDC, the Administration on Aging and Harvard Medical School.

Join us Fridays at 9am to start learning the Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention program. Ann Cothran will be leading this class. She is a certified instructor by Dr. Lam’s Tai Chi for Health Institute in the Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention Program.
