Tai Chi for Arthritis, a free class for people of all ages, will be offered at Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library in Sallisaw. The six-week class will meet twice a week, at 2 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays, beginning April 13. The classes will be teleconferenced from the Westville library, which is also with the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System.
Sponsored by the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative, Tai Chi for Arthritis is an exercise that is said to relieve pain, improve health and the ability to do things. It is easy to learn and many people who have learned the moves said they like it so much they continue to practice and enjoy the benefits for years. Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise that includes slow, continuous movements, strung together. Like dance, the movements follow one after the other and can be done sitting as well as standing. People of any physical condition can participate and progress regardless of age. Space is limited, and those planning to attend are advised to reserve a spot by calling the Sallisaw library at 918-775-4481.
