Tai Chi Health Classes in Colfax & St. John

Tai Chi for Health is being offered from January 28 - May 12 by the Therapy Services staff at Whitman Hospital and Medical Center. The class is provided on Tuesdays from 11 to 11:45 a.m. at the Colfax Library and from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Moments Spa in St. John. Classes are being offered at no cost thanks to a generous grant from the Lewis-Clark Valley Healthcare Foundation. 

Stay active this winter by working on balance, strength, and flexibility with Tai Chi!

What is Tai Chi? Tai Chi is one of the most effective exercises for health of mind and body. Although an art with great depth of knowledge and skill, it can be easy to learn and soon delivers its health benefits. For many, it continues as a lifetime journey.

Attendees need to wear comfortable shoes and clothing and no pre-registration is required.  For more information, contact Whitman Hospital and Medical Center Therapy Services at (509) 397-5733.
