VERGENNES — Starting in September, Age Well is offering classes in Sun Style Tai Chi in Vergennes at St. Peter’s Parish Hall.

In addition, an advanced class will meet once a week on Wednesdays and a 73 Form class will meet once a week on Mondays.
Tai Chi for Health and Wellness is an evidence-based program proven to reduce falls by 47 percent; help reduce stress and hypertension; build strength; improve balance, bone health, circulation and quality of sleep; expend breathing capacity; and promote mental clarity and mindfulness. Tai Chi is particularly helpful for adults with inflammatory joint conditions such as arthritis, and in improving pain-free range of motion (doctor recommended).
Beginner class (Parts 1 & 2) will be held from 9-9:50 a.m. every Monday and Wednesday. This class is for people who have never done Tai Chi or those who have experience and want to review what they already learned. Intermediate class (Part 3) will be held from 10-10:50 a.m. every Monday and Wednesday. This class is for people who have completed the Beginner class (Parts 1 & 2) and are ready to learn the next level.
Maintenance class will be held, from 11-11:50 a.m. every Wednesday. This class is for people who have completed both the Beginner and the Intermediate classes or are familiar with Parts 1-3.
