Free CPR training (hands only)
Ever wondered how you'd react if you were in a situation where someone had stopped breathing? Now you can react with confidence. Join trained instructors from Community Heart and Vascular as they teach the new "hands only" CPR guidelines of the American Heart Association. Hands-only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by people who see someone collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting (such as at home, at work or in a park). Be a lifesaver instead of a bystander!
To register, please call 800-777-7775 or register online for individual classes.

Tai chi classes
Tai chi is the most practiced form of exercise in the world. Originally developed in ancient China for self-defense, it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Referred to by the Harvard Medical School as "medication in motion," tai chi provides research supported healing and support for those with arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleeplessness, fibromyalgia, and back and spinal problems, as well as reduces stress and increases strength, mobility, balance and endurance. But don't let the gentle moves fool you; thirty minutes of tai chi burns the same amount of calories as thirty minutes of brisk walking.
2015 sessions now available for registration! Call 765-325-2940 or email email@example.com to register. About Tai Chi and 2015 class sessions >>
