Pathways to Wisdom: Healthy Aging in Mind, Body and Spirit

Healthy mind/body practices like Tai Chi, Qigong and yoga help reestablish the connection between mind and body and prevent many of the debilitations we see in aging. A review of 77 studies, found strong evidence that such practices improve cardiorespiratory fitness, physical function and bone health, balance and fall prevention, mental health and quality of life. Healthy fully functional people are money in the bank for all of society.
