Tai Chi for Fall Prevention Workshop (Studio)

Learn basic tai chi principles and postures that help strengthen the body and improve balance. Tai Chi walking in all directions, forward, backward and to the sides is an excellent balance exercise as you slowly transfer weight from one leg to the other with brief moments of balancing on one leg. Includes a unique tai chi form comprised of 8 movements and 5 steps. Tai Chi helps build strength in the core and legs, giving the body structural integrity that helps prevent falls. Tai Chi also helps manage stress, build confidence, and reduce the fear of falling
