MOUNT VERNON — The slow, synchronized movements of Tai Chi put minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. It is easy to learn and use, whether you can stand or sit. Perfect for people with arthritis, the benefits of the class may include reduced pain and stiffness, improved ability to cope with stress and depression, improved muscle strength and stamina as well as improved posture and increased circulation, heart and lung function.

A new Level 1 workshop will begin Tuesday, March 13, at 4 p.m., and will meet for seven weeks at the Center for Rehabilitation and Wellness, 1375 Yauger Road.

For more information or to register, call Jason Mentzer, wellness coordinator, at 740-393-9875. There is a small fee for the workshop.
