About the Teacher:
Winslow Rouse is a diplomat in Tai Chi with a master’s degree in counseling and certifications in acute, long-term and residential nursing. He began studying Tai Chi in 1964 with the famous Tai Chi Master Choy Kam Man and received his diploma and teaching certification nine years later. In 1974 he founded the first accredited Tai Chi training program in the United States, at the University of California at Santa Cruz. This program, which continues to this day, trains university students in the principles and techniques of Tai Chi. Since then Winslow Rouse has taught Tai Chi all over the Bay Area and in Sacramento, in many community and senior centers and in sports facilities.
When a close personal friend was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2001 and became a fall risk, Winslow began studying nursing, determined to learn how to help people avoid the danger of falls. Dissatisfied with the fall prevention training offered in nursing school, he tried applying his training in Tai Chi to the problem of falls and developed a fall prevention training program which combines modern biological knowledge with the ancient wisdom of the Chinese Tai Chi masters – to make anyone who can walk fundamentally fall proof.
