Tai chi classes are scheduled throughout the week in Salida and at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort. A beginner class meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon, while an intermediate class meets from 10-11 a.m. Both classes are held at Yoga Olas, 1548 G Street, Salida. Cost is $80 for 12 weeks.

All levels are welcome to attend tai chi at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort. Sessions are held on Fridays from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and include a 30-minute soak following class. Cost is $108 for 12 weeks.

The 16-week National Diabetes Prevention Program will be offered every Tuesday, Feb. 28-June 13, from 5:15-6:15 p.m. This healthy eating and exercise program is taught by certified instructors and recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the program is to help people lose five percent of their body weight and increase daily exercise. Classes will be held in HRRMC's second-floor conference rooms, 1000 Rush Dr., Salida. Cost is $50, which is fully refundable after attending 60 percent of the classes.
