The Q.B. Boydstun Library and the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative (OHAI) Northeast Center of Healthy Aging will be providing the Tai Chi for Better Balance Program. The classes will be held Mondays and Wednesdays at 9 a.m. beginning Sept. 13 through Dec. 8 at the Q.B. Boydstun Library, 201 E. South Ave. in Fort Gibson.
Tai Chi for Better Balance is designed to fit the interest and needs of older adults who want to maintain their quality of life and help alleviate pain and increase their balance. The movements of tai chi help seniors reduce stress, increase balance and flexibility. Participants learn relaxation to improve their overall mind, body and spirit through a series of slow continuous movements. Tai Chi for Better Balance is for people at all levels of mobility and can be done while sitting.
Instructors provided by OHAI, a program of the Donald W. Reynolds Section of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
