Tai Chi Programs for Seniors
I have been teaching Tai Chi Programs to Seniors in the Kansas City area since way back in 1993.
Tai Chi Programs for Older Adults are usually 30 minute classes held twice a week. These are select exercise routines that have been used for years with excellent results in participants. These Programs are suited for the mid to high functioning Independent Living and Assisted Living Participants. While one routine is all standing, another is half seated and half standing, and the third is an all seated routine.
Another Program that has recently been added is a Program for Memory Care participants. This class is for 30 minutes twice a week and the participants are seated the entire time. This particular routine takes a special kind of instruction as the participants are in all stages of Dementia/Alzheimer’s. I have gone through an 8 hour orientation for working with patients in these stages and look forward to this program adding to the quality of life for those in attendance.
I have the experience and caring tolerance to lead Tai Chi Exercise Programs for people at various stages of advanced aging, from Independent and Assisted Living, to Memory Care.
I have been certified by the Arthritis Foundation as a Level 2 Instructor.

I have traveled to China many times to learn Tai Chi from my Teacher who is a Grand Master of Tai Chi. I’ve been fortunate to visit and practice Tai Chi at the very place where it was created. My Teacher is one of the 19th generation Tai Chi Masters from the Family that originally created Tai Chi back in the 1600’s.
Plus I have developed Programs for Seniors from many years of teaching Tai Chi Exercises and working with Health Professionals. I work mainly as an outside contractor and carry my own Liability Insurance. My school and business name is, Three Dragons Way School of Chinese Boxing, Inc.
