Tai Chi for Better Balance will be presented at Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library in Sallisaw in November and December.
The program, co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative (OHAI), is free. Classes will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, from Nov. 7 through Dec. 14.
Tai Chi for Better Balance is designed to fit the interest and needs of older adults who want to maintain their quality of life and help alleviate pain and increase their balance. The movements of Tai Chi help seniors reduce stress and increase balance and flexibility. Participants learn relaxation to improve their overall mind, body and spirit through a series of slow continuous movement.
The program is for people at all levels of mobility and can be done while sitting. Instructors are provided by OHAI, a program of the Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Oklahoma.
For more information or to reserve a place in the class, call the OHAI Northeast Center of Healthy Aging at 888-616-8161.
