Tai Chi for Arthritis combines the gentle, slow movements of Sun Style Tai Chi to strengthen muscles and bones, improve coordination and balance, and sharpen mental focus. Each class begins with stress-reducing Qigong and a series of full body warm-ups before proceeding to the low-impact Tai Chi form instruction.
In the first half of this form (movements 1-20), core and extension movements are linked together in a continuous flow to provide the foundation for more challenging movements in the second half (movements 21-41). It is suitable for anyone who can stand and walk without assistance for approximately 30 minutes.
Designed by Dr. Paul Lam, Director of the Tai Chi for Health Institute, a team of medical experts and Tai Chi masters, this program is safe, easy to learn, and effective. This course was developed in collaboration with the Arthritis Foundation and has been shown in medical studies to relieve pain, reduce falls and improve the quality of life for participants.
