Spectrum Generations, in partnership with Healthy Living for ME, will offer a workshop for adults who are interested in learning how to prevent falls and relieve arthritic pain.

Tai Chi for Health and Balance will be offered weekly from 10 to 11 a.m. beginning Thursday, Feb. 6, and running through May 21. Workshops participants will meet at the Victor Grange, at 142 Oakland Road, in Fairfield, according to a news release from Spectrum Generations Healthy Living for ME in Augusta.

The class is an exercise program for improving health and well-being, proven to help prevent falls and relieve pain for those living with arthritis.
