Tai Chi - For Relaxation, Balance and Strength

A series of six weekly Tai Chi classes was offered at the Dorchester Senior Citizen's Center, beginning on February 26th. Our final class will be on Thursday, April 2nd, from 11 AM to 12 Noon.

E. Frederic Mirer, our instructor, led the series of six classes, from Cheng Man Ch'ing's form, "Grasp Sparrow's Tail." All of our members that participated in the Tai Chi class found it very helpful for relaxation, balance, and strength. During the class, we learned that these benefits of Tai Chi help seniors stay healthy and young.

More information about our instructor's Tai Chi method can be found at the Patience Tai Chi Association website:
