Moving for Better Balance is an evidence-based, falls-prevention program that uses the principles and movement of Tai Chi to help older adults improve balance and increase confidence for everyday activities.

The program is led by a trained instructor and focuses on improving functional ability to reduce fall-related risks and frequency for those with low to moderate risks of falls.

Moving for Better Balance is a 12-week program that meets twice a week for 24 sessions. Each session is one hour.

Programs require a minimum registration number. Program days and times are subject to change. The YMCA will notify enrollees of any changes.

Take our falls risk assessment to see if you qualify for the program.
