Tai Chi Classes and Instructors

Improve Balance and Prevent Falls Through Tai Chi
Are you worried about falling? The fear of falling often results in more falls; hence, confidence in “not falling” helps reduce these incidents. Tai Chi is a gentle movement exercise that improves balance by strengthening muscles and coordination; simultaneously, it strengthens the mind, enhancing calmness and confidence in not falling. Thus, with regular practice, tai chi is a highly effective exercise for fall prevention.
Classes to improve balance and prevent falls are held throughout our service area, and are even available by Zoom, which means that you can try this in the safety and comfort of your own home. For more information on Tai Chi for Fall Prevention, please call or email Wendi Germain at 802-755-7295 or email her at wgermain@seniorsolutionsvt.org.

For more information or to register for classes please contact the instructor listed.
