Each weekly class, held on Tuesdays, costs $10 per session.

Research shows that the type of movement in Tai Chi improves balance, bone density, arthritis symptoms, immune function, mental acuity, and cardiovascular fitness.  Additionally, Tai Chi is a very beneficial form of exercise as a means of preventing falls and injuries.  

The instructor, Judith Rew, is an affiliated instructor with the Tai Chi Academy of North Jersey and began her training in Traditional Yang Family Tai Chi with Holly Sweeney-Hillman more than eleven years ago.  She has achieved the level of Gold Eagle (Level 3) in the Yang Family ranking system.  Previously, Judith trained in Goju Ryu and Shotokan karate for 15 years.  In August 2012, she traveled to China and competed in the Yang Traditional Tai Chi Fourth International Invitational Tournament of Shanxi Province, China, and earned two bronze medals.

Community Education  SAGE hosts programs and events to help educate and provide resources for local residents.  Outside professionals are often brought in to discuss topics that are relevant to older adults, their families, and caregivers.

Exercise Classes  SAGE’s exercise classes are offered as an off-shoot of the fall prevention initiative, but are open to anyone 60 years of age and older.

Current classes are:
Fun-to-be-Fit
Gentle Chair Yoga
Tai Chi

The exercise programs are open to the public and are designed with a gentle approach for all fitness levels to improve strength, flexibility, and overall conditioning in an effort to prevent falls.

Support Groups  SAGE currently hosts three free caregiver support groups that are open to the public.  One group is affiliated with the Alzheimer’s New Jersey and provides an opportunity for family members and their caregivers to discuss the challenges and trials of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia.  This group meets monthly on the fourth Tuesday at 10:00 am.  SAGE also offers one group specifically for spouses that are caregivers and one group for adult children who are caregivers.
