About Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance

Tai Chi is a low-impact form of Chinese martial arts that involves slow, controlled, flowing movements. Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance is a basic beginner falls-prevention workshop designed for adults 60 and over. The eight Tai Chi movements have been shown to assist with balance.  Tai Chi can also help improve hand-eye coordination, enhance health and fitness, reduce stress and provide a gentle aerobic workout.   Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance is a 12-week, 24 session workshop.
