Greetings!

This is Chris Cinnamon, Head Instructor at Chicago Tai Chi. I have a special interest in Tai Chi for Knee Health.

 I have sustained multiple knee injuries from contact sports and competitive martial arts. I have had two knee operations. I have clinical diagnoses of osteoarthritis (OA) in both my knees.

12 years ago, my knees hurt all the time! It hurt to climb stairs. It really hurt to go down stairs. It hurt to get out of a chair. It hurt to sit in a car. No fun!

Just to exercise and sometimes just to get through the day, I would take lots of Ibuprofin. I became increasingly worried that I would lose my ability to be active and mobile.

Today, my knees are strong, springy, and more flexible than 10 years ago. And most importantly, I no longer have chronic discomfort.

I attribute much of my progress to lots of Tai Chi. And I have applied Tai Chi principles for knee health to all my activities. As a result, my knees feel better than they have in years.

But you don't need to take my word for it. As we will cover in the workshop, multiple medical research studies have concluded that Tai Chi reduces pain and increases function in patients with knee OA.

I have developed the Tai Chi for Knee Health program to help people use Tai Chi principles and movements to have healthier knees. Even as we age! I did it. You can too. It just takes some training and practice.

In this workshop, I will share with you Tai Chi for Knee Health principles and movements that, with practice, can help make your knees feel stronger, springier, more flexible, and help reduce discomfort.

Your knees will thank you! Hope to see you in Chicago on Sept 3!

Best, Chris Cinnamon
