The mission of the Margaret Fuller House is to strengthen and empower youth, families, and community residents. We work to address the economic, social and political inequities that shape the lives and futures of Port/Area IV residents.
The Area IV Coalition in partnership With the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House and Seniors Connected Incorporated are delighted to offer to seniors and those on their way to becoming seniors an opportunity to be part of a series of Tai Chi classes.
Tai Chi is an effective alternative to routine exercise. It encourages mental calm, clarity, and releases stress. With purely a health emphasis Tai Chi classes have become popular in hospitals, clinics, and senior centers. Other benefits of Tai Chi are balance control, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness. The goal of the class is not only to foster better health, but to also foster and build community connections with neighbors and neighborhoods in and around the Area IV and Central Square Communities. The classes meet on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 8am-9am beginning June 7th and running through July 13th. They will run for 6 weeks with the option of just participating for three weeks. We encourage you to participate in all 6 classes however.
There is a slight fee which will be on sliding scale basis, $5-10$ which will be $30-$60 per three week session. All Area IV residents will not have to pay this fee. The Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House will sponsor seniors residing in Area IV. Since classes are starting very soon please contact Roscoe Thomas (617-308-6420) ASAP if you are interested.
Also, the first three weeks the classes will be held at Dana Park and the second three weeks will be held in Clement Morgan Park.
