Tai Chi for Arthritis & Falls Prevention

Tai Chi for Arthritis & Falls Prevention

LIBERTY, NY — Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese practice that combines slow and gentle movements with deep breathing. By learning to balance one’s mental and physical energy, Tai Chi helps to increase strength, prevent the risk of falls, and helps deal with stress. In the spring of 2024, Caregiver Resource Center Program Coordinator Nancy McGraw will bring back the Tai Chi for Arthritis & Fall Prevention program as an eight-week series for residents in Sullivan County.

This is a one-hour class which will take place twice per week, every Tuesday and Friday beginning January 30th and ending Friday, March 22nd. This 8-week series will cover gentle Tai Chi exercises designed and evidenced to improve participants’ strength, flexibility, balance, overall health, and to help them prevent falls! Participants should note that this program is free for those who want to purchase the affiliated educational book! For all others, a $10.00 fee will be collected at the beginning of the course and reimbursed to those who complete the 8-week program without missing more than 3 sessions.

Class size is limited. To register, participants can go online to https://tinyurl.com/3s4uhzc9, scan the QR code found on the Tai Chi flyer, or email sullivancrc@cornell.edu.
