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

NIH Recommends: Qi Gong:
Consider your health and fitness level Qi Gong is a gentle, low-impact exercise for all ages and fitness levels
Find activities you can fit into your schedule Qi Gong routines are from 7 to 30 minutes and can performed anywhere
Find activities that are in line with your budget Practice Qi Gong in classes or by following inexpensive DVDs -- requires no special clothing or equipment
Find activities you enjoy Millions practice Qi Gong for a pleasant, gentle, and relaxing experience, both during and after a routine
Select activities that improve flexibility, strength, endurance, and balance Qi Gong satisfies three of these four recommendations (the gentle nature of Qi Gong does not always build endurance)

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.

Highlights of the Qi Gong for Seniors DVD include:

  • Three different variations of the routine: Seated, standing, or standing with a chair for balance
  • Deep breathing: Breathing exercises enhance energy, increase lung capacity, and improve circulation
  • Dog Wagging the Tail: A unique stretching exercise that improves spinal flexibility and washes away tension from the body
  • Hand and wrist exercises: Ways to open the joints of the wrists, hands, and fingers to increase energy, reduce stiffness, and relieve arthritis pain
  • Rooster Stands on One Leg: A classic Qi Gong movement that improves balance and coordination
  • Facial massage: Simple self-massage to release tension in the jaw and temples while creating radiant and glowing skin
  • Classic Qi Gong movements: Improves mental clarity and total body coordination
  • Pulling Down the Heavens: A flowing movement that brings positive energy into the body and strengthens the immune system

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:

  • Reduced stress
  • Clearer thinking
  • Stronger immune system
  • Improved sleep
  • Higher levels of creativity
  • Positive outlook on life
