Moving for Better Balance is an evidence-based, falls-prevention program that uses the principles and movement of Tai Chi to help older adults improve balance and increase confidence for everyday activities.
The program is led by a trained instructor and focuses on improving functional ability to reduce fall-related risks and frequency.
The 12-week, 24-session-program builds on traditional Tai Chi by transforming the movements into therapeutic training for balance and integrating the movements into daily functions.
“Twelve very wonderful and useful weeks! I’ve made new friends and learned new moves! The routine is useful for better balance but they are also meditative.”
