Ascension Parish Library has teamed up with the Capitol Area Agency on Aging to present an evidence-based fall prevention program for adults 60+ years of age. Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention offers a gentle exercise option that can help reduce the risk of falling by improving strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility. 

Endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Arthritis Foundations around the world, Tai Chi is an easy, enjoyable, and safe activity for people with or without arthritis to learn. Medical studies have shown the program to relieve pain for people with arthritis and improve their quality of life, as well as prevent falls for older adults. This series of one-hour classes will be held twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, for eight weeks from April 17 –June 7.

No prior experience necessary. Class size is limited. Call (225) 647-3955 to register to attend classes in Gonzales. Call (255) 622-3339 to register to attend classes in Galvez.
