  • LE MARS — Keeping active and fit is important for people of all ages.

    A number of activities are offered at the Le Mars Senior Center to help individuals remain active.

    Most recently, a group of seniors completed a course, Tai Chi for Arthritis, offerered by the Connections Area Agency on Aging.

    Stan Wisnieski was the instructor for the eight week course. Sessions were held twice a week.

    “I have taught ‘A Matter of Balance’ here before. When I told them Tai Chi was coming, they wanted me to bring it here,” Wisnieski said.

    Persons with arthritis have mobility but limited mobility, he said.

    For this class, Wisnieski taught the Sung style developed by Dr. Paul Lam.
