Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance (TJQMBB) is an exercise program to improve strength, balance, mobility and daily functioning, as well as prevent falls in older adults and individuals with balance disorders.

Through the workshop, participants will see improvements in:

  • Postural stability;
  • Awareness and mindful control of body position in space (to prevent falling);
  • Functional walking;
  • Movement symmetry and coordination;
  • Range of motion around the ankle and hip joints;
  • Lower extremity muscle strength

TJQMBB should be offered in community settings to groups of 8-15 people.  Workshops are taught twice weekly for 60 minute sessions for 12 weeks.

To become certified, leaders must attend two-day intensive training of movement-based learning of the 8 core forms.   New leaders should have experience leading group exercise and working with older adults. Certified instructors must lead at least two 12-week sessions each year.  Online resources are available for trained leaders, as well as update training opportunities to provide additional practice and training.

Certified leaders must provide classes that consist of 1) Tai Ji Quan-based warm-up movements, 2) core practice emphasizing integration of individual forms, variation in forms and mini-therapeutic movements, and 3) a brief period of breathing cool-down exercises.

Registration is due with payment by Tuesday, July 18, 2017.
The cost of the training is $40.
