Tai Chi For Better Balance Students Complete Course
LABELLE, FL. -- Students of Suzanne Clarke recently completed a Tai Ji Quan course "Moving For Better Balance" at the L.J. Nobles Senior Center in LaBelle.
The course is based on traditional Chinese Tai Chi and promotes better balance for seniors taking the 12 week course. The course was sponsored by Senior Choices of Southwest Florida and Hope Health Services.
The course was developed by Dr. Fuzhong Li, of the Oregon Research Institute in Eugene, Oregon and has been recognized by the Center For Disease Control as effective in preventing falls and injuries.
Dr. Li was recently in Fort Myers giving a training course for new Tai Ji Quan teachers. Among those completing the course were Mary Bartoshuk and Don Browne, both of LaBelle.
