Improve your balance and confidence. This class is an evidence-based program to improve balance and decreased arthritis symptoms. It incorporates exercises that improve balance, muscular strength, flexibility, and fitness. The class is based on Sun style Tai Chi, which is a gentle form and can be practiced standing or seated. The movements are reviewed by physician and professionals to tailor them for people with arthritis, especial for those people with osteoarthritis of hips or knees.
