Tai Chi: Moving for better Balance Instructor workshops by Suman Barkhas:
April 7-8, 2012 and June 23-24 2012
All movements adhere to fundamental principles of Tai Chi: involving weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing stances, good body alignment and coordinated movements conducted in a continuous, circular and flowing motion. Movement coordinates with the inhale/exhale breathing cycle. Movements are taught in sets which can be performed separately and linked to form a sequential routine. This exercise program has been recommended by the Center For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as an effective community-based intervention to prevent falls for older adults (CDC-2008). Other benefits: Social and mental well-being, Balance and daily physical functioning, Self-confidence in performing daily activities, Personal independence and quality of life and overall health.
