NEW classes!

Tai Chi/Qigong

Starting March 5, try the new Tai Chi class - a proven choice for older clients! Mondays, 8:30am

The benefits of Tai Chi include:

Improving Balance and Reducing Fall Risk. The evidence suggests tai chi is an efficient, cost-effective way to improve static and dynamic balance. The American Journal of Chinese Medicine concluded that tai chi was more effective than other measures for preventing falls in at-risk populations.

Cognition. Although it is difficult to pin down exactly how tai chi improves cognition, it appears that practicing the movements can significantly enhance global and executive functioning in people with either no or mild cognitive impairment and may protect against cognitive decline.

Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death of children ages 1-14. About ten people die from unintentional drowning every day, and of these, two are children under the age of 14, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
