OUR MISSION:  The BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI mission is to empower people of all ages achieve their physical and mental goals through the art of Tai Chi.

Hi, my name is Erica Bough, 4th Degree Black Belt, American Taekwondo Association Certified Instructor and Tai Chi Certified Instructor through the Tai Chi for Health Institute. As a three time World Champion in Taekwondo, I was looking for a gentle addition to my training.  Hence, the birth of BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI. I found with the presence of Tai Chi in my life, I became much more productive with my training, allowing time for a truly happy life with the people around me.  My goal is to share this knowledge with others and improve the physical and mental health of as many people as possible. Tai Chi is for everyone. Come join me!

 

WHAT IS TAI CHI?

 

 

Hour for hour, tai chi brings in more benefits and enjoyment than most other exercises. It is an ancient art with great depth, yet requiring no special equipment. People of any age or physical condition can gain better health, enjoyment and progression to higher level. It is even fun and can be practiced alone or in a group. What’s more importantly, tai chi helps you to like yourself more, which, in turn, leads not only to better health, but also harmony within yourself and with others.

WHAT IS FALL PREVENTION?

Several studies have shown Tai Chi for Arthritis effective at preventing falls. In addition to this program, the Tai Chi for Health curriculum addresses many chronic illnesses with excellent results over other traditional treatment plans. It works through improving balance, confidence and muscular strength.

WHY IS A FALL PREVENTION PROGRAM IMPORTANT?

Falls are the main reason older adults lose their independence and the leading cause of injury-related deaths, hospitalizations and emergency department visits among adults 65 and older.

  • This year one third of adults over 65 will fall and those who have fallen will be at an increased risk to fall again:
  • 60% of hospitalized patients will be discharged to a nursing home or rehabilitation center
  • 11% will have suffered a traumatic brain injury
  • 27% will have fractured a hip.

THE GOODS NEWS IS THAT FALLS ARE PREVENTABLE

 

 

 

Evidence-based programs address all of the components that make up balance.

  • STRENGTH
  • STAMINA
  • FLEXIBILITY
  • VITALITY
  • CONFIDENCE
