Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance: YMCA Central

February 19 @ 10:30 am - August 7 @ 10:30 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 course is open to the public (you do not need to be a member of the YMCA to attend) and will run Mondays and Wednesday from 10:30-11:30 from 2/19/24 thru 8/7/24.
