Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance Workshop

  • Woodland Community Center, YMCA 3211 Allendale Avenue Duluth, MN, 55803 United States (map)

Stay active and independent. Join the “swing and sway” movement for improved flexibility and mobility. Tai Ji Quan is a falls prevention program derived from traditional Tai Chi movements and enhanced as a therapeutic practice to help older adults improve balance, coordination and postural control.

This tailored workshop is led by trained coaches who guide people in learning a core eight-form routine and eight therapeutic movements from the Tai Chi Yang-style.
By the end of 12-weeks, participants report improved cognitive and physical functional abilities and reduced incidence of falls. Developed by Dr. Fuzhong Li, Ph.D., Oregon Research Institute.
