The path to wellness in Grant County is paved with information and help on several topics.

Here’s a list of some of the classes and programs available:

TAI CHI

• Free classes are at 5:05 p.m. on Wednesdays at the hospital, in front of the upstairs registration area. The sessions, led by physical therapist Sarah Russ, last about 40 minutes, with each series running six weeks. The emphasis is on safe mobility and improving balance. All ability levels are welcome.

For more information, call the physical therapy department at 541-575-4157, or email taichigrantcounty@gmail.com. Leave an email address to get email alerts on schedule updates.

• A private tai chi program is also led by licensed massage therapist Kevin Cline, who offers a simple, short form that promotes balance, relaxation and energy flow through gentle movements.

Currently, four-week sessions are on Monday evenings in April, August and December, with other daytime classes possibly in the works. The fee is $40; $20 to review. Call Cline at 541-575-1011 or visit SimplyTao.com.
