Gundersen St. Joseph's launches new Aquatic Tai Chi program
A new community wellness program is coming to Hillsboro! Aquatic Tai Chi is a water-based exercise and relaxation program that combines deep breathing with slow movements of the body. Aquatic Tai Chi is performed in a warm water pool to relax the muscles and improve flexibility.
The new program will be hosted by Tammy Gagnon, PTA, physical therapist assistant at Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics. The program will run for 12 sessions at Hotel Hillsboro.
Aquatic tai chi can help improve core strength, promote relaxation and reduce joint pain. Participants will be guided through a series of coordinated movements in a 4ft deep pool set at 86F.
The classes will run twice per week for 6 weeks starting September 10.
For more information and to sign up for the class, call (608) 489-8260 or visit gundersenhealth.org/st-josephs/community-health/.
