NEW CLASS – Tai Chi for Arthritis & Osteoporosis Beginner Level 1 – Wednesday 12:15pm Mundaring Wellness Centre

April 17 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

$144.00

Term 2: Mon 15 April – Sun 30 June (11 weeks)

Class Details:

The Tai Chi for Arthritis program was created in 1997 by Dr Paul Lam and a team of Tai Chi and medical experts. Tai Chi is designed to improve:

  • Muscular strength to support and protect the joints
  • Flexibility and mobility to reduce pain and stiffness

The focus on weight transference improves balance, which reduces falls, and the movements increase fitness, which promotes the proper functioning of the heart and lungs.

This beginner-level course, held in a relaxed, social setting, introduces participants to Tai Chi movements to improve flexibility, mobility, posture, and balance. It combines these movements with breathing exercises, which help relieve pain, reduce stress, and increase relaxation.


Venue:
Harmony Hall, Mundaring Wellness Centre, 16 Craig St, Mundaring
Cost: Please see ticket details below to view term class fees.
Class Times: You may only attend the day and time allocated for this class (once per week)

*Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and flat-soled shoes and bring a water bottle.
