It promises all the benefits of a strong body, and it is also noted for calming the mind and improving balance — an especially important issue for older people.

These exercises can be performed anytime, anywhere, and they require no special clothing, shoes or equipment. You can do them alone or with others, at home or even outside. Tai chi is not competitive, and you can work at your own pace as the slow, steady movements smooth the breathing and increase the intake of oxygen into the lungs. This carefully designed program greatly enhances circulation — without leaving you gasping for breath. andlt;BRandgt; In andlt;Iandgt;Tai Chi for Staying Young,andlt;/Iandgt; you can expect: andlt;BRandgt; andlt;UL TYPE=DISCandgt; andlt;LIandgt;Gentle exercises that fit easily into your day andlt;LIandgt;Slow movements, accompanied by natural breathing, that relax the whole body and promote physical as well as mental health andlt;LIandgt;A combination of stillness and movement designed to release muscle tension, enhance circulation and bring greater elasticity and strength to all major joints andlt;LIandgt;A program that is safe and beneficial for those with blood pressure and cardiac problems andlt;LIandgt;Improved balance that reduces the risk of falls andlt;/ULandgt;

Synopsis:

Through a series of hand and arm motions that resemble holding a ball, Master Lam shows how to release tension in the muscles, encourage circulation and bring elasticity and strength to all major joints. Specially developed for seniors, this easy to follow full-color step-by-step guide takes the reader, through two complete sets of these gentle exercises that will each occupy only 15 minutes a day.
