Tai Chi for Persons with Strokes, Brain Injuries or Movement Disorders

Tai chi is known as a moving meditation characterized by slow, rhythmic movements. It can improve balance, coordination, and focus of attention, and can also reduce stress.
Instructor Ruth Anne Plourde has been teaching tai chi to people with chronic disorders for nearly two decades. She has studied with six internationally known masters of tai chi.
