STRONG. STEADY. SAFE.
Older adults and those with chronic health conditions often feel they must accept impaired balance and limited mobility—this is not true. You can build strength, improve balance, and gain confidence in your mobility through Moving for Better Balance.
This evidence-based, instructor-led group program is designed to help you improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and mobility through slow, therapeutic movements based on Tai Chi.
- Moving for Better Balance is conducted in a small group setting of 10-12 adults, providing a safe and comfortable environment.
- Sessions take place twice a week for 60 minutes, and continue for 12 weeks, supplemented by a 30-minute weekly at-home practice by each program participant.
