At exactly 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 24, members of the Milford Senior Center will take valuable steps toward improving their health and balance.
Gathering in the parking lot of the Center, on 111 Park Avenue in Milford, the group will practice several forms of tai chi in honor of World Tai Chi and Qigong day.
Since 1999, practitioners of the ancient Chinese art, have stepped off in unity around the Globe with the theme of “One Breath, One World” on the last Saturday in April. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements. Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because tai chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you are an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.
The Milford Senior Center offers its members almost daily Tai Chi opportunities that include T’ai Chi Chih and T’ai Chi Chuan for Arthritis and Fall Prevention.
