This program focuses on prevention of falls by regular practice; Tai Chi will improve one’s balance and reduce the likelihood of falling. There are eight single forms in the program, all of which are derived from the traditional, well-known, 24-Form Yang Style Tai Chi but tailored to community adults who wish to improve balance and mobility. All forms adhere to the fundamental principles of traditional Tai Chi and involve weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing stances, postural correct body alignment, and multiple, coordinated movements executed in a continuous, circular, and flowing manner. Performance of the forms is closely synchronized with natural breathing, that is, each single movement coordinates with the inhale and exhale breathing cycle. The eight single forms are arranged in a sequential order, following a progression from easy to more difficult. Each of these forms can be performed and practiced repeatedly as a single movement or in combination as part of a routine.
