The movements are slow and uninterrupted and designed to provide participants with improved balance, strength, and flexibility.  Gail Curcio, class regular, says “Highly recommend Tai Chi/Chair Yoga classes for Seniors. These classes enable me in keeping active, healthy physically and mentally, gives tools to live safely and they are fun and free. They are the whole package for living a full life as I age.
