The very successful Matter of Balance (MOB) workshops end after 8 sessions, so this program will formally link and capitalize on the energy and motivation created by MOB and invite the participants to continue their adventure with Tai Chi for Arthritis. The invitation to a final session which includes special PowerPoint pictures of each MOB participant growing and gaining confidence during each session. We take that energy into a demonstration of the joy of Tai Chi. Simple descriptions of the value of Tai Chi for Arthritis and falls prevention both orally and with handouts will solidify the continued value of their physical activity.

This presentation was featured at the 2018 National Center for Healthy Aging Annual Meeting.
