Tai Chi is one of the most effective exercise systems for mental and physical well-being. Emphasis is on breathing and the use of gentle, fluid movements.Tai Chi releases tension, deepens relaxation, improves balance, increases bone density and develops muscle tone. Its gentleness is especially suited for  older adults and people who are rehabilitating from an illness or an accident. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes to this 45-minute class.  We offer both beginner- and intermediate-level classes.Instructor:  Ken Zaborowski
