Tai Chi for Arthritis & Fall Prevention

***Physical Address of Program: Alliance Bible Fellowship, 105 Bypass, Boone, NC, room 303.

Tai Chi for Arthritis & Fall Prevention 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 with turns to move forward and backward to improve mobility, weight transfer, strength and balance. A variety of movement combinations are offered. Movements can be modified to accommodate mobility issues for any participant and can be done seated as a starting exercise.

This course will be offered twice a week for 10 weeks for a total of 20 sessions. Participants are encouraged to attend at least 11 of the 20 in order to experience the benefits.

Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention 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
