Take a Health Break! Try Tai Chi.

Tai Chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.

Tai Chi is a great way to bring balance into your life. People who practice Tai Chi experience a profound sense of wellbeing and connection to everything. Join Galter LifeCenter's Lin Shook Schalek in learning one of her favorite poses, Embrace Tiger.
