Living Well with Chronic Conditions is designed to improve the self-management skills of people living with ongoing health issues. Conditions like arthritis, mental health conditions, chronic pain, cancer, or diabetes can cause those affected to lose physical conditioning and suffer health problems over many years. This program teaches new strategies that will give participants the confidence, motivation, and skills needed to manage living with a chronic health condition.

Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance is a set of eight coordinated movements, practices in slow, flowing motion. These movements help older adults gain good body alignment, improve their balance, and reduce the likelihood of falling. Research shows the people who complete the program are half as likely to fall and are less fearful of falling.
If you are an older adult, able to walk, canes and walkers are OK, and are interested in improving balance, flexibility, and strength, please join us in improving your balance while practicing the relaxing, fun art of Tai Ji Quan! For more information or when the next classes will be held, contact Stacey at the YMCA!
