Do you feel like your balance is not as good as before? Are you concerned about falling? One way to help prevent falls is to keep moving! Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention offers a gentle exercise option that can help reduce the risk of falling by improving strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility. Tai Chi focuses on the mental and spiritual aspects of Chinese martial arts integrated into movement.  This low-impact, relaxing form of exercise is ideal for older individuals.
