The World Health Organization recognizes wellness as “…a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Here in northeastern Vermont, the NEK Council on Aging provides information on two types of wellness programs: the practice of Tai Chi and Pets for Life for companion animals.

Tai Chi

Golden Ball Tai Chi (pronounced TIE CHEE) is an ancient Chinese practice. This graceful form of exercise is used to reduce stress and modify a variety of other health conditions. Authorized instructors lead the weekly classes.

Tai Chi Sun Style is widely acknowledged as effective for offsetting the advances of arthritis. Authorized trainers lead the weekly classes.
