Clinical Applications of Tai Chi and Mindful Movement For Improving Balance and Increasing Core Stabilization Strength
Copyright :


Over the past several decades, Western medicine has begun to recognize the myriad of benefits that centuries old Eastern holistic practices like Tai Chi can bring to our modern day health and wellness. These benefits have each been validated in the scientific literature and include the effectiveness of Tai Chi in improving balance and reducing the incidence of falls, reducing pain from arthritis and other debilitating diseases, and  increasing relaxation by decreasing stress. In this exciting interactive workshop, your mind will come to understand the power of this ancient practice at the same time your body begins to feel the incredible benefits as you spend the day in mindful movement learning an actual Tai Chi routine.
