About The Class
This class varies in size from week to week. Some weeks there are just a handful while other weeks we can have more than a dozen participants. Experience levels range from long time participants to newcomers.

In the T’ai Chi for Better Balance class, we proceed through a series of T’ai Chi movements with the aim of improving our balance. These are movements that are taken from more traditional styles of T’ai Chi and simplified. This allows participants to follow along more easily so that we can focus on the aspects of these moves that help with our balance.

In the Free Trial Intro classes we will have some fun and explore a variety of elements from the T’ai Chi for Better Balance program and we will introduce participants to the movements from the program.

During the 4-week course, we will begin to work our way through the movements, giving the participants an opportunity to learn each of the moves. We will also explore deeper elements of T’ai Chi and how those elements help us improve our balance.

While not required, it is helpful to practice these moves between classes. Participants who practice more frequently tend to experience greater benefits of improved balance, reduced stress and greater enjoyment of the moves themselves.
