Tai Chi

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is good exercise for the body, mind & spirit.  It improves your breathing, circulation, balance and strengthens your muscles.  It is a very low impact exercise with slow stretching movements.  It is challenging learning the movements but with patience and consistency, it is a healthy way of feeling good and it is fun.  You do this for yourself and there is no competing with anyone.  This class is a fun class, so come and join us.  Tai Chi classes are held each Friday at: 10:00 AM - 11:00 am.

The Group Leader is Helen Lainchbury and her Phone # 250 743 3107.
