All together for tai chi (this time, online)
In February, Upstate Oasis and 100 Black Men of Syracuse Inc. teamed up to offer Tai Chi for Arthritis, exercise classes that feature slow, joint-safe movements and breathing to improve strength, mobility, balance and concentration.
A month into classes, COVID-19 public health mandates stopped in-person gatherings.
Tai chi instructor Linda Goodrich offered to continue classes online, so participants could exercise at home. The program is paid for by the Onondaga County Department of Adult and Long Term Care. For more information on classes, go to upstate.edu/livinghealthy.
