Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance

from 0.00

Support your community members in staying active and independent! Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance is a falls prevention program derived from traditional Tai Chi movements and enhanced as a therapeutic practice to help older adults and those with balance disorders improve balance, coordination and postural control. This tailored program is led by trained leaders who guide people in learning a core eight-form routine and eight therapeutic movements from the Tai Chi Yangstyle. By the end of two 12-week sessions, participants report improved cognitive and physical functional abilities and reduced incidence of falls.

Workshops are offered through the statewide Juniper network—a centralized hub of community providers delivering evidence-based programs to help people manage chronic health conditions, improve balance and prevent falls, and foster well-being. Evidence-based programs are those that are developed and verified by researchers.
