The YMCA’s Tai Chi:  Moving For Better Balance program is a 12 week evidence based falls prevention program recognized as effective by federal and state agencies.  The program builds on traditional tai chi by transforming the movements into therapeutic training for balance and integrating the movements into daily functioning for older adults.  An instruction book is provided with lesson plans, tips on creating a safer home environment to prevent falls and homework based on each week’s class.
