Press 6-3 – Tackle joint pain and stiffness with better health, independence and new relationships.
Tai Chi from the Arthritis Foundation is appropriate for anyone seeking a joint-safe program but particularly those with mild to moderate arthritis. Tai Chi may help reduce pain and stiffness, and improve mobility, breathing and relaxation. In addition, the movements have higher stances, which make it easier and more comfortable to learn.
Tai Chi from the Arthritis Foundation will take place at the Dresden Senior Center on Evergreen Street in Dresden, on June 14, 15, 17, 18, 21, 22, 24 and 25 from 2-3 p.m. The eight-session class costs $48 and is taught by Beverly Shelby, University of Tennessee Extension Agent and Arthritis Foundation certified instructor. For more information about Tai Chi from the Arthritis Foundation, contact the Weakley County Extension Office at 364-3164. The registration deadline is June 11.
The University of Tennessee Extension Service offers its’ programs to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age religion, disability or veteran status and is an equal opportunity employer.
