Tai Chi for Better Balance
Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance® (TJQMBB) is a research-based balance training regimen designed for older adults at risk of falling and people with balance disorders. The program uses eight forms that have been derived from the traditional 24-form Yang-style Tai Chi, and progresses from easy to difficult.
This unique training approach is the culmination of a systematic series of scientific studies to improve efficacy, utility, and community and clinical relevance. Research has shown that people who complete the program are half as likely to fall and are less fearful about falling.
The program is intended for adults aged 60 and older, who can walk easily with or without assistive devices; however, younger participants are welcome as well.
