Drop into Seniors in Balance, every Thursday at 1 pm. Improve your balance and physical confidence with Shirley Dockstader and the stabilizing, time-tested movements of Tai Chi and Chi Gong. In this class we strengthen the base of support and center of gravity in our bodies through the weight-shifting movements of Tai Chi and the energy cultivating movements of Chi Gong.  Movements are slow, fluid, restorative and fun!
