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.
Pre-registration is required. For more information, contact Sherry Young at 866-413-5337 (866-41-ELDER) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Before starting any exercise program, always check with your physician.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant for disease prevention and health promotion under the 2018 Older Americans Act, Title IIID, through the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.
