Tai Chi Classes
for better balance and mobility
Older adults and those with chronic health conditions often feel they must accept impaired balance and limited mobility, but this is simply not true. You can build strength, improve balance, and gain confidence in your mobility through slow, therapeutic movements based on Tai Chi.
