Falls are a major concern for elderly folks. Hospitals see up to one million patient falls per year and spend an average of $14,000.00 on each one. Tai Chi has been proven in scientific studies to help prevent falls. The slow, mindful movements result in more energy, looser joints, and better balance. This class is modeled on the Centers for Disease Control STEADI programs which are designed and tested to reduce falls in seniors.
