Tai Chi is an exercise based on a Chinese martial art described as slow-motion Kung Fu. Tai Chi involves slow, controlled movements that emphasize maintaining good balance. This exercise can help the elderly reduce the risk of falling, which is a significant health risk for people over the age of 60. About 30 percent of people over 65 fall at least once a year and 10-15 percent of these falls result in injuries such as fractures of the hip and other bones.
If you would like to maintain good balance and reduce the risk of falling, this exercise may be for you. If you're interested in the class or just curious to see what it's all about drop in and join us.
