ELLSWORTH — The Moore Community Center, 133 State St., is the site of one of six eight-week beginner Tai Chi for Health courses offered by Healthy Acadia across Washington and Hancock counties this winter. The class runs on Thursdays through March 9, from 10:45-11:45 a.m.
More than 500 people have participated in Healthy Acadia’s Tai Chi for Health classes since they began in 2014. The classes use a step-by-step teaching method, which makes tai chi easy to learn. They are appropriate for people of all ages, at all levels of physical ability.
This ancient Chinese practice incorporates slow, gentle and controlled movement to improve relaxation, flexibility, concentration and muscle strength.
While classes are free, a $5 per-class donation is suggested. To register, contact Nina Zeldin at 667-7171 or [email protected].
An intermediate class is offered at the same location on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon.
