Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance

It's Tai Chi! Improve balance! Make friends!

Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance (TCMBB) is an exercise class being offered through RSVP, a volunteer recruitment/placement program which also oversees the popular RSVP Bone Builders classes. The eight forms used in TCMBB have been proven through scientific study to improve balance and strength among participants.

We are looking for volunteers to train as instructors. No prior experience with Tai Chi is required, although it is helpful. Training consists of visiting one of our classes (in Ventura, Oxnard or Camarillo or online), completing 15 hours of training with our master trainers, and practicing the forms before becoming certified. There is no charge for being trained, but we do request a commitment to teach at least two 12-week sessions of the free class once certified.

Currently there are two scheduled trainings:
Training 1: August 15, 22 and 26 (1 to 4 p.m.) and August 20 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m., lunch provided)
Training 2: January 28 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m., lunch provided), January 30, February 3 and 6 (1 to 4 p.m.)

Instructors must be 55 or older to qualify for RSVP program.

As a Volunteer Instructor you will lead twice weekly 90-minute classes over a 12-week period. Volunteer Instructors co-teach with a partner, allowing flexibility for vacation and personal days. Class size is small and participants are typically seniors.

COVID-19 increased the level of social isolation among seniors. This program, while focusing on exercise, also emphasizes making friends and connections with others in the class with a goal of fighting loneliness.
