The JCC of Syracuse Family Sports & Fitness Center will begin offering Tai Chi for Arthritis, a new group exercise class, starting on June 5. The weekly class will be held on Fridays from 10-10:55 a.m. in the upstairs exercise studio.

Tai Chi for Arthritis uses gentle Sun-style Tai Chi movements to help reduce stress, improve breathing and develop balance, mobility and body awareness. Although the class is geared toward helping people with arthritis reduce pain and improve many aspects of health, you don’t need to be diagnosed with arthritis to participate. The class is open to individuals of all abilities and everyone is welcome.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice proven to improve mental and physical well being.

The class is free for JCC Full Facility (fitness) members. A $10 per class drop-in fee applies to non-members. Special package prices are available for non-members.
