Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

GREENSBORO — Each month the approximately 100 members of St. Pius X Church’s Seniors Ministry meet for Mass in the chapel followed by lunch and a short program.

Their first program of 2018 featured Eric Reiss of the Silk Tiger School of Tai Chi for an introduction and demonstration of Tai Chi. Tai Chi, originally a martial art, is mainly practiced today as a form of exercise to improve strength and balance. Particularly among the elderly, the exercise can be beneficial in reducing the risk of falls, and it can be taught at all levels of ability – seated or standing.

The Seniors Ministry is considering adding a Tai Chi class to its offerings.
