Every Wednesday afternoon from 2 PM to 3 PM the LOEL Center offers classes in the ancient art of tai-chi. Tai-chi is a simple and gentle form of exercise.
Once learned and practiced daily, tai-chi can cut the risk of falling by almost 50%, in addition, it can help lower blood pressure, relieve stress, quiet the mind, and improve coordination, memory, and concentration. It is so relaxing and calming that it is referred to as a moving meditation.
The cost is only $6.00 per person, per class and the class is always open to newcomers, so come join in the fun.
