Tai Chi
Tai Chi is one of the best exercise methods for balance and falls prevention.  It is kind to joints but emphasizes leg strengthening and postural alignment.  Jody Curley, MA, certified Tai Chi and meditation instructor who has been teaching for 25 years, leads the class.  She is offering an 8-week session meeting each Monday at 11:15 a.m. in the Lounge of the Community Center.  Call 222-3415 to register.  Cost is $25.00 for the entire 8-week session or $5.00 per class if paid on a per class basis.

Chair Yoga
For anyone who has ever hesitated to try yoga because of the challenge of getting down onto the floor or doing standing poses, now a chair becomes your mat.  Many poses that can be done standing, sitting or lying on a mat can be adapted to sitting on a chair or using a wall for support.  Everyone, beginner to advanced, is accommodated, as each pose will be presented in multiple levels of flexibility.  The class includes breathing, meditation, stretching, strengthening and a lot of fun!  $8.00 per session.  Held in the Lounge of the Community Center, main level.   Call to register at 222-3415.
