FULL--Tai Chi for Falls Prevention

Meeting Rooms A and B Combined
Friday, Jul 19, 2024, 2:00pm to 3:00pm

This is the second session of a 4-week progressive series. Registration for the series is required and opens at 9am on 6/28.

You might know that Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese exercise that has been called "meditation in motion" (Harvard School of Medicine), but did you also know that regular Tai Chi practice is an evidence-based way to reduce your risk of falling? Adults of all ages are invited to this 4-week session especially designed to be a gentle and inclusive introduction to Tai Chi. No prior experience is needed; this is an adaptive class offering seated, standing, or standing with side support options. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and flat shoes (no high heels or sandals, tennis shoes are great.)

About the Presenter: In addition to being a Tai Chi and Qigong instructor, Ellen Hussey is a physical therapist, Stepping On facilitator, and a member of the Falls Free Dane coalition of Safe Communities of Madison and Dane County.
