Relieve stress and increase flexibility by participating in Tai Chi classes led by a certified instructor. Tai Chi is an ancient practice that is enjoyable and safe for every fitness level. The slow, meditative movements of Tai Chi increase strength, range of motion and coordination. Classes can be enjoyed either sitting or standing. Comfortable shoes and loose clothing are recommended. Please bring a personal water bottle. This is a great fitness opportunity for our Wise Trek population (ages 50+) and for people with type 2 diabetes.
When: Wednesdays at 3pm starting August 5
Where: First Horizon Foundation Visitor Center - AutoZone Front Porch and/or lawn
Hoop Fitness is a low-impact, full body cardio workout that can burn up to 700 calories per hour! Workouts will increase core strength, balance, coordination, posture, muscle tone and self confidence, all while having fun!
This isn't your kid's hula hoop! This class uses adult sized hula hoops that make it easier to maintain momentum while waist hooping and that will build strength while moving the hoop around the body.
You are welcome to bring your own fitness hoop or you may borrow one from the instructor. A limited number of hoops will be available in a range of sizes on a first come, first served basis.
When: Saturdays at 9:30am on August 8, 15, 22, and 29
