Tim Anderson is an NCCAP Certified Activity Consultant and certified Chair Chi(r) instructor from West Warwick, RI. He has facilitated seated tai chi programs for older adult participants in adult day and assisted living communities since 2016, having received his training from Pat Griffith, founder of the Chair Chi(r) exercise program.
Chair Chi is a gentle exercise program developed by Pat Griffith to help people receive the benefits of traditional Tai Chi Chuan in the comfort and safety of their chair. This allows people who cannot stand or do not feel confident with their balance (walker, wheelchair, movement disorder) to participate and benefit. Those benefits include balance, flexibility, range of motion, strength, energy, pain relief, tranquility, stress reduction, and peace of mind.
