October 4th, 2019 thru January 31st. 2020 Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance 

Have you stopped doing the things you love because of your fear of falling?  Do you think that just because you're not in your 30s that you can't build muscle?  Are you frustrated that your strength isn't what it used to be?

Tai Chi can help!

By attending a FREE Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance program provided by Direction Home Akron Canton Area Agency on Aging & Disabilites, you will:

  • Learn the first 8 forms of Yang-style Tai Chi
  • Improved strength, balance, and flexibility
  • Gain confidence

The exercises are easy to do and can be done from both a standing or seated position, and classes are led by a trained volunteer leader.

  • Every Friday beginning October 4th
  • 2:00-3:00 pm
  • First class (Oct. 4th) will be a one-on-one balance assessment; begin learning forms Oct. 11th
  • Wear comfortable clothing and good fitting shoes - please no sandals or flip flops
  • NO CLASSES November 1st and November 29th
  • Minimum of 8 people needed to hold the class

Thank you, and if you have any questions at all, please let me know.  We look forward to seeing you there!
