Exercise for Seniors
At Last! A Gentle Exercise Program Designed Just for Seniors
Do You Have Difficulty Moving Around?
Do you have trouble getting in and out of chairs? Do you sometimes lose your balance? Are your joints or arthritis a source of pain? For older adults, these are natural issues. There is also a natural solution: exercise.
Exercising and being physically active is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. The National Institute of Health recommends that seniors get 30 minutes of moderate activity every day of the week. But how? What's a safe, effective way for seniors to exercise?
Introducing Qi Gong, the Perfect Exercise for Seniors
Qi Gong (pronounced "chee-gong") is a gentle form of exercise that is very similar to tai chi or yoga. It consists of slow, natural movements that help you breathe, stretch, build strength, and even improve mood.
Qi Gong is great for seniors because it is mild and gentle. Qi Gong started in Asia over 2000 years ago, and it is now practiced all over the world by people of all ages and fitness levels. In fact, Qi Gong is rapidly gaining popularity right now with leading health experts.
Qi Gong is Highly Recommended
In January of 2010, the American Geriatrics Society released new guidelines for the prevention of falls in older persons. For the first time, they singled out Qi Gong as a recommended exercise to improve balance and reduce falls.
The National Institute of Health also recommends Qi Gong as a great form of exercise for seniors. Not only does it help with balance, but it also fits well into the lifestyle of most seniors.
Choosing an Exercise that Fits Your Lifestyle
An Exercise Program with Immediate Benefits
Seniors face a difficult situation. As you age, you lose flexibility, muscle strength, and bone mass. Joints stiffen. It becomes harder to move around and do the things you enjoy, from reaching the top shelf in the kitchen to playing with grandchildren. It may also become harder to exercise.
However, seniors often experience results and benefits from exercise faster than any other age group, generally in days or weeks! As soon as you begin stretching muscles and opening joints, it makes everything in life easier, including exercise itself.
Presenting Qi Gong for Seniors with Lee Holden
Millions of people watch Lee Holden and his Qi Gong programs on PBS stations across the country. While Qi Gong is great for everyone, Lee decided to create a unique program especially for seniors, addressing problems specific to this age group. In this video, he is joined by his mother (who is a senior), Karen Holden.

So Much More than Just Exercise
Qi Gong translated from Chinese means "cultivate energy." In Chinese medicine, Qi, or "life force energy," is a natural energy that runs throughout the body. The body is like a four-lane highway, with energy flowing like car traffic as oxygen and vital nutrients are delivered to all the body's cells. When energy is "blocked" or "backed up," it can cause pain and disease. Qi Gong works to keep the energy flowing, creating internal harmony and equilibrium.
People who practice Qi Gong experience a wide range of benefits outside of those you might normally associate with exercise, including:
