Tai Chi For Healthy Aging

Balance has been shown to decrease with age. However, some aspects of balance can be enhanced through training. Older adults who practice Tai Chi fall less and are less afraid of falling. Ron Marcotte is a qualified instructor of Brookline Tai Chi’s 15-year-old program, "Tai Chi for Healthy Aging," which consists of simplified Tai Chi exercises that focus on fall prevention by improving balance and facilitating greater relaxation through better breathing. Emphasis is on weight shifting, postural alignment, coordinated movements and synchronized breathing aligned with the Tai Chi movements.
