Tai Chi for Health
with Karen Reilly
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese form of exercise practiced around the world for its health benefits. This is a low-impact exercise performed in slow, fluid movements improving physical fitness and mental relaxation. The movements are slow, controlled, and gentle, emphasizing body alignment, weight transfer and internal focus. Both easy to learn and do, the forms are designed to improve flexibility and balance; enhance relaxation; increase strength and flexibility; develop better breathing; and improve overall health. Tai Chi is clinically proven to improve your balance and reduces the rate of falling. Movements can be done seated or standing making it ideal for people of almost any age or physical condition. This particular Sun style, developed by Dr. Paul Lam, is supported by the Arthritis Foundation, the Administration on Aging, and rated by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as the highest evidence-based program for older adult health and wellness. Class is offered as partnership among SeniorsPlus, Gould Academy, Bethel’s Recreation Department, Bethel’s Age Friendly Community Initiative and MSAD#44 Adult Education.
