163 Shadowline Dr.


Description:    Developed by Dr. Paul Lam at the Tai Chi for Health Institute (TCHI), the program utilizes Sun style tai chi. Sun tai chi utilizes mindful movements to improve relaxation, includes a common follow-step, which improves balance and strength, and has a higher stance, which allows the movements to be more comfortable and safer for older adults. The movements are taught to both left and right sides and with turns to move forward and backward to improve mobility and offer a variety of combinations. A minimum of 16 hours of Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention is recommended to achieve the health benefits published in the research literature. In NC, we require that this workshop be offered for 20 hours so that participants can attend 16 hours over 20 sessions to achieve the recommended benefit.

Dates: Every Tuesday & Thursday from February 6 through March 28, 2024

Time:     1:30 pm – 12:30 pm EST
