Craving increased energy and flexibility? Here’s a solution!
Are you looking for an exercise program that will increase your flexibility, balance, core strength and energy level while at the same time lowering your stress and pain? Then the Ai Chi class offered every Wednesday from 1:00 – 2:00 pm in our warm water, therapeutic pool at Helen Hayes Hospital may be right for you.
Ai Chi is a simple water exercise and relaxation program that is performed under the guidance of a therapist in our 92 degree heated pool. Ai Chi is performed while standing in chest deep water. The program combines deep breathing with slow, broad movements of the arms, legs and torso in flowing continual patterns that create balance, harmony and healing. Ai Chi can help reduce muscle weakness and widespread pain as well as joint stiffness.
Ai Chi is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels who are looking to relax and move.
The cost is $28 a month.
