TAI CHI An Exercise for Fall Prevention, Better Balance, and Health Benefits
Presented by Elizabeth A. Rankin, PhD, Senior Trainer, Tai Chi for Health Institute

Treatment of injuries, due to falls, is one of the most expensive health conditions. Long term effects are disheartening. Studies of Tai Chi, an exercise that strengthens mind and body, have shown that it is one of the most effective exercises to prevent falls.
Queen Anne’s County Department of Community Services, Area Agency on Aging offers this presentation which will have information about Tai Chi and some of the ways that Tai Chi decreases the risk of falls through learning better balance, enhanced coordination, calming the mind, and building self-confidence. These all support stability when moving about. What's more, Tai Chi has other health benefits. Some Tai Chi movements will be demonstrated and those who attend this free presentation will be invited to practice some Tai Chi with the presenter as time permits.
This seminar will be held Tuesday September 6, 2016 1:00 p.m. at Sudlersville Senior Center (410) 438-3159, Thursday September 8, 2016 1:00 p.m. at Kent Island Senior Center (410) 604-3801, and Friday September 9, 2016 1:30 p.m. at Grasonville Senior Center (410) 827-6010. Please register in advance for this free presentation.
