Topic: Taiji (tai chi), with Dr Gary Yuen

He tells us:
“First, I want to point out that I am not trained in applying Taiji as a form of physical rehabilitation nor do I know anything about the use of Taiji as an exercise specifically for Parkinson’s disease. I can bone up on the research literature beforehand, but I won’t be able address questions relating to Parkinson’s disease. Instead, I can share the principles behind Taiji which dictate how and why Taiji practitioners move the way we do. That connects with the enhancement of lower body strength, upper body suppleness, and balance, the reasons why Taiji is such a popular exercise for aged people in general. My typical approach whenever I give Taiji presentations to ‘naïve’ audiences is to spend minimal time lecturing about the art, but devoting more leading the audience through simple movements so they can physically experience what the art is about. I fully understand that audience members may vary widely in their movement ability, so my only expectation is that audience members follow me in the movements within their comfort limits and physical abilities.”
