The program will be at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.
Physical therapist Michael Siegel will present a routine designed specifically to help seniors reduce the risk of falling. Siegel has for many years practiced physical therapy in California, Japan and elsewhere.
He developed Functional Tai Chi in response to senior citizens who are statistically more likely to experience falls as they continue to age.
