MVP beginner Tai Chi moves

Join us for an introduction to Sun (pronounced soon) Style Tai Chi.

It also reduces the risk of falling in addition to improving any number of chronic conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension, to name a few. Please wear flat soled shoes and loose, comfortable clothing. There is no fee for this class, compliments of MVP Health Care®. Join at any time during the session- all seniors citizens are welcome.
