Would you like to deliver Tai Chi for Arthritis to older adults?

Tai Chi for Arthritis is a program designed by Dr Paul Lam and a team of medical specialists and tai chi experts. Based on the Sun style of tai chi, Tai Chi for Arthritis is easy to learn, effective and safe. Tai Chi for Arthritis is an evidence based program which works to prevent falls through improving balance, confidence and muscular strength in older adults.

At the completion of the workshop, you will have learnt:

  • The essential principles of tai chi
  • How tai chi improves health and arthritis
  • The Tai Chi for Arthritis set
  • How to teach the program effectively and safely using Dr Paul Lam's stepwise progressive teaching method

This year we are also offering Tai Chi for Arthritis Part 2 which teaches nine new movements. Tai Chi for Arthritis Part 2 is suitable for those who have completed the original Tai Chi for Arthritis program (on either 17/18 November or a previous training) and are looking for a more challenging course.
