The first of these free classes begin on Thursday August 16.

Originating in ancient China, Tai Chi is one of the most effective exercises for health of mind and body. Although an art with great depth of knowledge and skill, it can be easy to learn and soon delivers its health benefits. For many, it continues as a lifetime journey.

Anyone regardless of age or level of fitness can practice and benefit from Tai Chi. Loose, comfortable clothing and flat shoes should be worn to classes.

Tai Chi can help provide many benefits when practiced over a lifetime, including helping to:

Produce a refreshed, greater mental focus.

Create better sleep patterns.

Create good body posture.

Promote muscle fitness.
