• Tai Chi for Balance

    Tai Chi is a slow, gentle, non-strenuous exercise routine that has been proven to improve balance and decrease the risk of falls. Tai Chi is also associated with other health benefits including reducing blood pressure, improving sleep and decreasing stress. 


    Our instructor, Paula Allen, is a certified tai chi instructor who has taught tai chi in a wide variety of settings in the Omaha area for more than 4 years. Paula holds a BA in Occupational Therapy and a Master’s degree in Public Administration.


    Tai Chi for Balance meets Mondays and Thursdays from 11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Enter through the west entrance.
