What is Tai Ji Quan?
Tai Ji Quan is an evidence-based fall prevention program.

Benefits of Tai Ji Quan include:

  • Increased lower-body strength
  • Increased balance, flexibility & mobility
  • Mindful control of body positioning in space
  • Reduced risk of falls
  • Increased range of motion around ankle joints
  • Decreased anxiety and depression
