Moving for Better Balance is a falls prevention program that uses the principles and movements of Tai Chi in helping adults improve their balance and increase their confidence in doing everyday activities. Lead by a Tai Chi trained instructor, the program focuses on improving functional ability, especially balance, to reduce fall-related risks and fall frequency. The program uses eight forms that have been derived from the traditional 24-form Yang-style of Tai chi, and progresses from easy to more difficult. Participants increase their self confidence, gain a sense of achievement, and improve their well-being in a safe environment. The supportive network of friends formed in the Moving for Better Balance program fosters a strong sense of belonging and leads to empowered, independent living for adults.
