Description:    This program will be virtual for residents of Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Wilkes and Watauga counties. The Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention program is a 10 week course that focuses on balance, mindfulness, and gentle exercise.
Developed by Dr. Paul Lam at the Tai Chi for Health Institute (TCHI), the program utilizes Tai Chi’s Sun style for its ability to improve relaxation, balance and its ease of use 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.
