You KNOW you should be doing regular exercises at home …..
but, truth be told, very few of us do them.
That’s why being part of a class makes sense.
Not only do you get appropriate instruction – that’s great.
it also gives you accountability and an element of social interaction and fun.

Being a caregiver for my husband with dementia for almost 20 years has been very taxing. I rely on Taoist Tai Chi to maintain a healthy balance to my everyday routines. Lately have started line dancing which further keeps me in contact with people and steady on my feet. Running a house on my own now keeps me on my toes, as I do a lot of gardening as well.
Well done – these are all excellent activities to ensure that you are keeping those neurons and vascular cells regenerating. And, of course, you are trying out our mental challenges as well!
