In this episode of Chetco Activity Center, Your Gathering Place, host Scott Clapson meets with local Tai Chi instructor Tom Argyle to talk about the Chetco Activity Center, his love of Tai Chi, and the positive impacts both have had on his life.

Tom began his journey with Tai Chi by taking classes at the Chetco Activity Center, and now regularly leads the classes along with three other instructors. Tom came from a background in martial arts and uses Tai Chi to improve mobility and maintain his joint health. Tai Chi provides a low-impact, strengthening workout, which can improve the balance and posture, and is open to people of all ages and ranges of mobility.

Tom and Scott also spend time discussing the many options the Chetco Activity Center gives members to have fun and keep active, including pickle ball and a new yoga class. These classes are free to all Activity Center members!
