Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis 

****Physical Address of Program:  Class will meet both in person at the Watauga Co. Library and virtually via Zoom***

Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis has been proven to reduce joint pain, improve relaxation, build strength and increase balance.  Tai chi is a gentle exercise suitable for anyone and especially helpful to older adults and those with arthritis. The movements are taught to both left and right sides and engage the entire body to improve mobility and strength and reduce pain. A variety of movement combinations are offered. Movements can be modified to accommodate mobility issues for any participant.

This course will be offered once a week through May 20th, 2024. Participants are encouraged to attend at least 11 sessions in order to maximize the program benefits.

Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis is led by a TCHI Board certified instructor, with each session including the following:

  • Warm-up and cool-down exercises
  • One or two movements per lesson
  • Breathing techniques
  • Tai Chi principles
