Description:    Developed by Dr. Paul Lam at the Tai Chi for Health Institute (TCHI), this program utilizes Tai Chi’s Sun style for its ability to improve relaxation, and balance, and its ease of use for older adults and those with arthritis. The movements are taught to both left and right sides and with turns to move forward and backward to improve mobility, weight transfer, strength and balance. A variety of movement combinations are offered and movements can be modified to accommodate mobility issues for any participant and can be done seated as a starting exercise.

This course will be offered twice a week for 10 weeks for a total of 20 sessions. Participants are encouraged to attend at least 16 of the 20 in order to experience the benefits.
