Two Free Healthy Aging Programs Offered in Sept.

Tai Chi Classes will be offered on Wednesdays from September 15 to November 3 from 10 to 11am and held at the Stoneham Senior Center, 126 Elm St. in Stoneham.

 Led by a certified instructor, the classes feature a combination of slow, continuous movements with deep breathing. Tai Chi is often referred to as “meditation in motion,” and there is growing evidence that practicing Tai Chi has value in treating and preventing a range of health issues. Our practice is gentle, requiring a small range of motion and can be done standing or seated.

 Although the program is free, registration is required. To reserve your spot, call 781-438-1157.

A Matter of Balance will be offered on Thursdays from September 16 to November 4 from 10am to 12pm and held at the Pleasant Street Center located at 49 Pleasant Street in Reading.

 A Matter of Balance is a free, award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels. You’ll learn how to see falls as something you can control; set goals for increasing your physical activities; make modifications to your home to reduce fall risks; and practice exercises that will increase your strength and balance. This workshop is designed for anyone—whether you are concerned about falls, have a history of falling, or are interested in improving balance, flexibility, and strength.

 Although the program is free, registration is required. To reserve your spot, call 781-942-6794.
