This Wellness on the Web program is part of Ethos’ response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, bans on large gatherings and the growing social isolation of our most vulnerable residents. Health and wellness presentations, conversations with elected officials, exercise classes and other activities will streamed regularly on internet via Facebook Live and YouTube Live.
Join us for another edition of Ethos Live and the first in a four-parts series of videos designed for older adults to learn and practice Tai Chi, a graceful form of exercise that involves a series of movements, known as forms, which are performed in a slow, focused manner combined with controlled breathing.
Tai Chi is a low impact exercise that puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it suitable for many older adults. Evidence has shown Tai Chi to be an effective exercise to prevent falls, it does not require special equipment and can be practiced indoors or outdoors, either alone or in a group.
This program is funded in part through a grant from the Tufts Health Plan Foundation and through contributions from community members. If you would like to know more about how you can support Ethos Healthy Aging programming, please visit www.ethocare.org.
