NB: The Tai Chi for Arthritis Program is the same as The Tai Chi for Arthritis for Fall Prevention Program which was recommended by CDC and evidenced based. Both programs have exactly the same movements and incorporated tai chi principles for improving health and wellness, as well as proven effective for fall prevention. The former has slightly more emphasis on arthritis while the later on fall prevention.
