Therapeutic Tai Chi for Health was designed with seniors in mind. The slow-moving, low-impact exercises were modified for older people who want to build up and preserve their strength, increase flexibility, improve balance and reduce risk of falls. Therapeutic Tai Chi practiced by the elderly can relieve pain associated with osteoporosis, arthritis and a variety of other chronic pain conditions. It helps to reduce stress and deal with anxiety. This is why Therapeutic Tai Chi for Health is recommended as an effective health maintenance system.
For more than a decade now, National Institute on Aging has conducted research studies which concluded that Tai Chi shouldn’t be overlooked as a way to improve physical function in old age and prevent disability.
We have been working with older people for years. Our experienced instructors have taught classes focused on health at senior and community centers. These classes have been appreciated because we focus on relaxation and stress reduction, as well as physical benefits. The movements in Therapeutic Tai Chi are gentle, and many exercises can be performed standing or in a chair. Elders who engage in these exercises report an increase in energy. They also enjoy the social element of Therapeutic Tai Chi when practiced in a small group.
We would like to bring Therapeutic Tai Chi classes to you! Onsite classes are based on the length of the service agreement contract and range from $75 to $100 per class for a group.
Open classes at health centers and community sites are $15 per class or $80 per 8-class session for each person.
