Cancellations/Postponements of Programs Every once in a while we think we have a great program idea or an instructor has proposed a great program; but the enrollment is insufficient. Staff looks at postponing the program (time to be determined) to see if there is evidence that we think we can get the program to make through other means; and canceling as a last resort. When we cancel, we do our best to notify participants and issue a refund. Program Evaluations Program evaluations will be randomly given to participants or their parents. Evaluations are issued to gauge how programs are received, the instruction or coaching, an assessment on the registration process from the time you get registration form to making payment and our reflection on you, the facilities we use and your ideas on what we can do to better serve you whether it is in program offerings, staffing or department operations.

Done in coordination with one’s concentration and breathing, these movements release tension through the body. The gently flowing progress of movements in tai chi cultivates whole-body health. A study by the Arthritis Foundation supports the many benefits of tai chi, including reduction of pain and inflammation, lowered blood pressure, improved immune function and improved balance and flexibility. This weekly tai chi exercise class will teach simple forms that are easy to learn, but challenging to master. Betty Doran and Linda Kline will lead the weekly sessions. *$25 for students that know the entire Health Form & $50 for all others including new students; drop-ins are $5 per class.
