Classes include warm-up, learning an 8-form core Tai Chi routine and cool-down exercises.
The goals of the training are to improve postural stability, control of body positioning, gait initiation, movement symmetry and coordination as well as to build lower extremity strength.
To meet the needs and performance capabilities of individual participants, movements will progress from seated, chair-supported and sit and stand practices.
