Free Tai Ji Quan Classes: Moving for Better Balance

Dignity Health Wellness Centers offer free classes in July

LAS VEGAS — June 18, 2019 —


Dignity Health - Community Wellness Centers in southern Nevada are offering free Tai Ji Quan classes to aid in improving muscle strength, balance, flexibility and mobility – skills that can help reduce the risk of falls among older adults.

“Injury from a fall is one of the leading causes of Emergency Room visits among seniors,” said Abigail Guida, Health Educator for Dignity Health. “Tai Ji Quan is an engaging, enjoyable way to improve balance, muscle strength, and flexibility.”

Tai Ji Quan is a research-based balance training program developed by a senior scientist at Oregon Research Institute, designed to assist older adults at risk of falling and individuals seeking to build better balance.

Twice-weekly participation in Tai Ji Quan for three months can improve mobility and prepare participants to advance to Level 2 courses, which are also offered at no charge.
