LAKEWOOD, N.J. – Tai Chi originated in China as a martial art.

The Center for Healthy Aging at Kimball Medical Center is proud to announce the return of Tai Chi instructor Kit Lau, who has been teaching Tai Chi for more than 10 years. Classes will be held each Thursday beginning February 6 through March 27 from 2 to 3 p.m.

Under her expert direction, participants will learn the fine art of Tai Chi moves from both standing and sitting positions. All seniors are invited to participate, regardless of medical conditions – Kit Lau can alter her instruction based on each class’ needs.
