About

Lead a one hour Tai Chi: Moving For Better Balance class for older adults and their caregivers twice a week for twelve weeks. This exercise program is designed specifically to address fall prevention in older adults and has modified 8 Yang Style Tai Chi forms with the input from PTs to focus on balance, strength and flexibility. The exercise includes both seated and standing movements and participants can do them all seated if necessary. The movements are slow, continuous and can be repeated as many times as necessary. The emphasis of the class is on being present, aware of how our bodies are moving and breathing for relaxation. You will be trained by Dr. Fuzhong Li, Oregon Research Institute. With your help, we can offer this valuable program to older adults and their caregivers!
