Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance: Continuing Healthcare at the Ridge
January 2 @ 10:00 am - April 11 @ 10:00 am
Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance® (TJQMBB) is a research-based balance training regimen designed for older adults at risk of falling and people with balance disorders. Fuzhong Li, Ph.D., a Senior Scientist at Oregon Research Institute, developed the program.
Although its origin can be traced to the contemporary simplified 24-form Tai Ji Quan routine, TJQMBB represents a significant paradigm shift in the application of Tai Ji Quan, moving the focus from its historical use as a martial art or recreational activity to propagating health by addressing common, but potentially debilitating, functional impairments/deficits.
This unique training approach is the culmination of a systematic series of scientific studies to improve efficacy, utility, and community and clinical relevance.
This FREE Tai Ji Quan course runs Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am-11pm until 4/11/24
