Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis

What is Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis? This modified seated version of Tai Chi for Arthritis can be enjoyed by anyone wishing to practice tai chi sitting down. People with almost any chronic condition can learn to improve their health and mobility. This safe easy-to-learn program relieves pain and improves health and quality of life. Many people wanted to try tai chi, but mobility issues caused them to hesitate. Dr Paul Lam and his team of medical and tai chi experts designed this program to give them a safe and effective way to learn; it will also provide health benefits and improve almost anyone’s quality of life. Based on the Sun style of tai chi, Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis (Seated TCA) is easy to learn, effective and safe. It improves flexibility, muscle strength, increases heart/lung activity, aligns posture, improves balance, and integrates the mind and body. Qualified participants who successfully complete the course will be eligible to become Board Certified by the Tai Chi for Health Institute to teach this program.
