TOWNSHEND- Starting Wednesday, August 22, Grace Cottage Family Health and Hospital will host a new, free beginner level tai chi class in the Community Wellness Center. The series runs for six weeks on Wednesdays and Fridays, from 9 to 10 am.
The soft, flowing movements of this ancient Chinese practice are widely acclaimed as one of the most effective overall exercises for physical and mental health.
Tai chi is especially beneficial for flexibility, balance, coordination, posture, and breathing. This type of exercise has been proven to help its participants avoid debilitating falls. The movements can be performed standing or sitting if necessary.
The series is free, however registration is required and class size is limited. While it is understandable that participants cannot attend every class, regular attendance is encouraged. For more information or to register call (802) 365-3649.
