Tai chi classes now available on Mondays

Last week's turnout for the tai chi classes offered free at the Library was phenonmenal! Over 80 people attended the Wednesday afternoon class and over 50 attended the Saturday morning class. We want to thank the community for coming out and participating in this beneficial exercise. In response to the overwhelming interest, the Library has added an additional class on Monday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. starting September 18. This class will meet every Monday through October 23. You may attend any or all of the following tai chi classes offered at the following times at the Library:
  • 2:00 pm on Mondays running from September 18 - October 23
  • 2:00 pm on Wednesdays running from September 6 - October 25
  • 10:00 am on Saturdays running from September 9 - October 28

The instructor is Diana Hobgood, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and certified massage therapist.

Benefits of tai chi exercise, which is a slow, gentle exercise system based on Chinese martial arts, include improved posture, flexibility, balance, lower body strength, coordination, physical endurance, breath control and stress management.

Registration is not required. Just show up and join the class any time! For more information, please call the Library at 826-3712.
