Tai Chi Renewal Class in May


On May 16, 2016, Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department (ELVPHD) will be hosting a Tai Chi renewal class for their volunteer instructors at the United Methodist Church in Norfolk. The instructors will be led by Holly Warth, RN and certified Tai Chi instructor. Nine current instructors will receive the renewal training. In addition, ELVPHD also worked with 4 new instructors in February to receive their Tai Chi certification. All of the trained Tai Chi instructors will then be able to teach classes in their communities to expand Tai Chi offerings.

ELVPHD has helped to provide community Tai Chi classes throughout the health district (Burt, Cuming, Madison and Stanton counties) for over six years. It is an evidence-based practice that is designed to improve balance and strength. The goal of the program is to decrease falls among residents– especially for those over the age of 65. Of the individuals who participated in the 2015 Tai Chi classes, 83% improved their movement assessment scores from the beginning to the end of the class series.

Classes are regularly held in senior centers and other public venues by a team of dedicated volunteer instructors. If you are interested in participating in a Tai Chi class, please call 402-529-2233. Funding for this project is provided by the Department of Health and Human Services – Division of Public Health.
