Tai Chi: Arthritis & Fall Prevention, Advanced

This slow, graceful exercise, which originated centuries ago as a martial art, can improve balance, reduce stress and offer arthritis pain relief.  Additional benefits include increased relaxation, strength and vitality, as well as improved posture and immunity.  Students learn a series of gentle, easy movements that are performed in order, similar to a dance routine, but much slower.  A modification of the form can be performed while seated in a chair.


In this class, students learn Dr. Paul Lam’s supplemental form for his form  known as Tai Chi for Arthritis.  This is an extra sequence added on to the end of the original form.  The movements in this supplemental form are slightly more complex than the movements in the original form, making this class a little more challenging.  There are 8 sessions in the class.
