(Editor’s note: This podcast is from The Not Old – Better show.)
Today’s podcast is part of our Fitness Friday series. We’ve got an important story about the value of Tai Chi, which has a profound effect on the brain, balance, well-being and blood pressure. Tai Chi can help older adults gain balance and strength which helps prevent falls and injuries. I spoke with Dr. Lewis Lipsitz, Harvard Medical School professor and researcher on aging.
Check out some local Tai Chi classes and enjoy the many benefits that come from this gentle physical exercise, stretching and mindfulness.
I want to thank Science Daily Senior Fitness News, Harvard Medical School and all those who have participated in bringing this show to you.
