TAI CHI Class at Santa Paula Senior Center

Tai Chi is a great form of non-impact exercise particularly well suited for older individuals. Its movements combine balance, flexibility, aerobic, and toning exercises through slow, graceful actions. Among the benefits reported for seniors are improved coordination; reduced arthritis pain, joint stiffness, and high blood pressure; relief of symptoms of chronic pain, anxiety and depression; maintaining healthy bone density level and improving everyday physical functioning. Practicing tai chi also improves balance in stroke survivors. Classes are held at the Santa Paula Senior Center on Thursdays from 2:00-3:00. The fee is $32 per month. Instructor Clifton Gore has extensive experience teaching Tai Chi to older adults. Sign up now by calling 933-4226 ext 350. The Senior Center is located at 530 W. Main Street.
