I must admit, I prefer more active, energetic exercises, so I sometimes incorporate a few minutes of Tai Chi into more active yoga or use it as a way to relax at the end of a busy day.
How does Tai Chi work to strength bones and prevent fractures? There are many research studies online that show a link between practicing Tai Chi and higher bone density, but researchers do not yet know why. In the Resources section, I have listed a few of the studies I found online that show a positive link between Tai Chi and bone density. Even if we don't know exactly why it works, it's easy to include as one more healthy activity for all ages. Do you have a success story with Tai Chi or other exercises?
