Tai Chi – starts again on January 26th
Beginners and Continuation Tai Chi are starting up again! Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors offers Tai Chi classes as a way to help seniors stay fit and flexible.  Tai Chi is a low-impact form of exercise, but it is also a weight bearing exercise, which is an important component of managing osteoporosis. Some of the benefits of Tai Chi are: better balance, which lowers the risk for falls, less pain and stiffness, stress relief and increased calmness and sense of well-being. And to top it off, it also helps to improve memory.  No experience is necessary and all fitness levels are welcome. If you’re a senior who would benefit from Tai Chi and would like to give it a try, call the Prince Edward Community Care office at 613-476-7493 to register. Space is limited.  www.communitycareforseniors.org
