Description

McLaren Port Huron will host Tai Chi for Arthritis and Falls Prevention, a program through MSU Extension that helps people with or without arthritis to improve balance, both mentally and physically, which helps significantly reduce the rate of falls experienced by older adults.

Other benefits include improving relaxation, vitality, posture and improved immune system.  Studies have shown that tai chi can reduce falls by nearly 70%.  The program focuses on confidence building, which is linked closely to the reduced rate of falling.

Tai Chi for Arthritis and Falls Prevention is led by a certified instructor, with each session including:
*Warm-up and cool-down exercises
*One or two movements per lesson, progressively leading to completing six basic core movements and six advanced extension movements
*Breathing techniques
*Tai Chi principles relating to improving physical and mental balance

This free 18 week program begins on Friday, October 21, 2022 at 10:30am in the McLaren Port Huron Charles Classroom.
