National Council on Aging (NCOA) at a training in Albuquerque, NM for selected Native Americans in the Four Corners states to become Tai Chi for Falls Prevention instructors.
Tai Chi is a graceful form of exercise that involves a series of movements, known as forms, which are performed in a slow, focused manner combined with controlled breathing. It is a low impact exercise that puts minimal stress on muscles and joints making it suitable for many older adults. Tai Chi doesn’t require special equipment and can be practiced indoors or outdoors, either alone or in a group. Many communities offer Tai Chi classes.
