Evening class added

Due to popular demand, Parksville Tai Chi is expanding to include an evening class.

The group recently celebrated its first year and have grown to now offer the practice five times a week.

“I am very excited about how this group is growing,” said founder Eva Grodt. Grodt and her fellow instructors donate all the proceeds from the classes back to the community and will be handing over $300 to the Parksville Food Bank this month.

Beginner classes now run Mondays from 6 to 8 p.m. starting Sept. 8 as well as Thursdays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. starting Sept. 4.

Fees are $20 per month or $50 for three months.

The classes take place at St. Edmunds Church in Parksville.

Tai Chi has been known to improve circulation, lower blood pressure, and improve arthritis, back pain, respiratory problems, digestive disorders and more.

People can show up at the classes and watch, register at the door, or call or email Grodt to register for any of the classes and for more information at 250-954-1002 or email evagrodt@telus.net.
