Tai Chi Classes For Seniors Offered at Northwest Library


Some people may joke about it, but seniors know that an off-balance fall can be serious business.

That’s why the Northwest Library, 5600 N.W. 122nd Street, and the Oklahoma City-County Health Department are combining to present a series of Tai Chi classes to help seniors increase balance and flexibility while reducing stress and protecting against falls.  Beginning on Tuesday, August 7, the classes will meet every Tuesday and Thursday beginning at 2:00p.m.

“We will go through the eight form exercises endorsed by OCCHD,” said library manager Julie Ballou, “and then expand upon those as the class progresses.”

Interested seniors can register for the course by calling the library at 606-3580.
