Special events for seniors this week

Sept. 17 – Tai Chi for seniors starts – Beginner and continuation Tai Chi classes are held regularly through the County Seniors Centre. Tai Chi is a way to help seniors stay fit and flexible. Tai Chi is a low-impact form of exercise, but it is also a weight bearing exercise, which is an important component of managing osteoporosis. Some of the benefits of Tai Chi are: better balance, which lowers the risk for falls, less pain and stiffness, stress relief and increased calmness and sense of well-being. And to top it off, it also helps to improve memory. No experience is necessary and all fitness levels are welcome. If you’re a senior who would benefit from Tai Chi and would like to give it a try, call the County Seniors Centre at the Community Care office, 613-476-7493. Space is limited and it is recommended to sign up early.

Sept. 20 – Meditation for seniors – This series of 8 1 hour classes will demonstrate how to meditate through attention to posture, breathing and the basics of secular Tibetan traditions that go back 2500 years.
