Tai Chi for Health

Tai Chi for Health is a form of Sun and Yang style Tai Chi designed by a Chinese-Australian physician to use a combination of Tai Chi forms as an exercise system. In this class students will learn the Tai Chi for Arthritis set, plus various other Tai Chi related exercises. The emphasis will be on balance, fall prevention, flexibility and strength building. There will be 12 one hour classes, conducted in a stress-free atmosphere. Tai Chi for Health and Tai Chi for Arthritis are registered trademarks of the Tai Chi for Health Institute. Before participating in any exercise program, participants should check with their doctors to ensure that there are no contraindications, special considerations, or limitations from a medical standpoint. Participants will be asked to sign a release form at the first class. Note: Due to the length of this course, the dates span across both session A and session B. This course does not meet on Wednesday, September 19 or Wednesday, November 21.
