Event Series Go4Life(R)

Go4Life®

Go4Life is based on studies that demonstrate the beneficial effects of exercise and physical activity for older people, including those with chronic health conditions. You’re probably already familiar with the research showing that fit older people have a lower risk of diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, obesity, depression, and some cancers than their less fit peers. Physical activity also has been shown to reduce pain and improves function in people with osteoarthritis.

Event Series Tai Chi

Tai Chi

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese movement practice that offers a number of health benefits. Research Trusted Source shows that practicing tai chi can improve balance, stability, and flexibility in older people, including those with Parkinson’s disease. Practiced regularly, it can also help reduce pain, especially from knee osteoarthritis, back problems, and fibromyalgia.

Regular practice of tai chi can significantly reduce the risk of falls among older adults. A 2017 review Trusted Source published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society found that tai chi reduced falls by up to 50 percent.
