Seniors and Peo­ple with Bal­ance Dis­or­ders CAN Stay Active

Sum­mer is com­ing — you’ll want to be as active as you can. Don’t let shaky bal­ance or fear of falling stop you. Train now to stay active with Tai Ji Quan: Mov­ing For Bet­ter Bal­ance (TJQMBB). Foun­da­tion 1A ses­sion runs Wednes­days and Fri­days, 10:30 – 11:30 am, May 1 through June 7. Foun­da­tion 1B ses­sion con­tin­ues June 12 – July 19.

TJQMBB is the top evi­dence-based Fall Pre­ven­tion and Bal­ance pro­gram in the coun­try. Decades of stud­ies have proven that reg­u­lar par­tic­i­pa­tion in this pro­gram can reduce risk of mul­ti­ple falls in old­er adults by 55% and in peo­ple with Parkinson’s by 67%. It has been endorsed by the Cen­ter for Dis­ease Con­trol and Pre­ven­tion, Nation­al Coun­cil on Aging, WA State Dept. of Health, and many others.

Like clas­sic Tai Ji, the prac­tice includes slow, low impact, con­trolled move­ments and body posi­tions with coor­di­nat­ed breath­ing. The eight core move­ments in TJQMBB have been adapt­ed to specif­i­cal­ly improve the parts of your body need­ed for increased bal­ance, strength and flex­i­bil­i­ty, mul­ti-task­ing and improved reflex­es. It also helps recall, switch­ing and reorder­ing, cog­ni­tion, breath­ing, mind­ful­ness, and body aware­ness. The class is tai­lored, ther­a­peu­tic, and functional.

Julie O., a stu­dent in a pre­vi­ous Foun­da­tion ses­sion, has already expe­ri­enced results, “It works! I was able to get my hands out and stop myself from falling flat on my face!”

Each Foun­da­tion ses­sion con­sist of 12 class­es at $120. These will be the last Foun­da­tion lev­el ses­sions until late Fall or ear­ly Win­ter. So grab your best friend, your neigh­bor, and join us for a fun, chal­leng­ing and high­ly effec­tive work­out. Gen­er­al enroll­ment is open until May 22nd only.
