Moving For Better Balance is a 12-week evidence-based falls prevention program recognized by the CDC, National Council on Aging (NCOA), U.S. Administration on Aging, (AoA) and various state Falls Prevention Coalitions and  Department of Health and Human Services.  The principles and movements of Tai Chi are used to help older adults increase their strength, improve their balance, and increase their confidence in doing everyday activities. The program protocol consists of a core 8-form routine and a subroutine of eight integrated therapeutic movements forms that have been derived from the traditional 24-form Yang-style of Tai Chi,  progressing from easy to more difficult which collectively involve a set of simple, rhythmic Tai Chi-based actions.  Class meets twice a week for 12 weeks.
