Research suggests tai chi outperforms conventional exercise in improving mobility and balance for seniors (msn.com)

Falls are a leading cause of injury for people aged 65 and older, but they are not an inevitable part of aging and there are proven ways to prevent them. To empower older adults to stay active, independent, and safe in their homes, the Alliance for Aging offers a class called Tai Ji Quan – Moving for Better Balance.

Tai Ji Quan improves leg strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, immune system, sleep, and the ability to concentrate and multitask.

This is a 12-week evidence-based group exercise program. The program, based on the principles of tai chi, is led by a qualified instructor and teaches eight movements modified especially for fall prevention. In the program, you’ll work to improve balance, muscle strength, flexibility, and mobility to enhance overall physical health, which leads to better functioning in daily activities. Participation in the program may also result in better mental health, reduced stress, improved memory and cognition, and increased self-esteem.
