New Class: Tai Chi for Fall Prevention

| Featured, News

The Grace Cottage Community Wellness Center is offering a free Tai Chi class, “Level 1 Tai Chi for Fall Prevention,” on Tuesdays 1:30-2:30 p.m., beginning Nov. 14.

This class, based on the teachings of Dr. Paul Lam, provides instruction in the “Sun” style of Tai Chi. This style lends itself to those with balance issues, as it is very upright. The teaching method involves lots of repetition, with every new move broken down into small steps. Come have fun, improve your balance, strength and peace of mind, as we move together in a new way.

The instructor is Alicia Moyer, Certified Fall Prevention Tai Chi instructor, and SASH Coordinator. Please register at 365-4115 ext. 108 by November 9.

Classes are held in the spacious and serene Community Wellness Room in the Grace Cottage Heins Building, 133 Grafton Road, Townshend.

An ongoing Level 2 Tai Chi for Balance class is also offered for free, for anyone who has completed Level 1. It is held on Tuesdays, 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Grace Cottage Wellness Center. Call 365-4115 ext. 108 or write to amoyer@valleycares.org for more information.
