Be stronger longer! Older people thrive with Taoist Tai Chi® arts

Seniors feel better through Taoist Tai Chi® practice. It helps us be balanced, flexible and strong. We have more confidence, more stamina and greater physical and emotional resilience.

In Taoist philosophy aging is not seen as an inevitable decline. As we are freed from the responsibilities of work and family, there is an opportunity to expand rather than contract, to grow and learn rather than degenerate. Taoist Tai Chi® arts allow us to age in a healthy way, despite and even because of the challenges we may have. The feeling is one of joy, connection and opportunity. Practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts creates harmony and connection resulting in a sense of calm, quiet and stillness that reaches into all aspects of life.

Seniors Flourish with Taoist Tai Chi® arts

Participants share stories of how Taoist Tai Chi® practice has changed their lives.

Host: It gives me great pleasure to welcome everyone to the International Seniors Day at Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi®.

We’ve been having seniors days for over 30 years, and Master Moy wanted us to recognize how much that Taoist Tai Chi® can help seniors as we know on so many different levels – the physical, the mental, the spiritual.

As well, I would like to announce that we’re doing this for the first time on the same day as the United Nations Day of the Older Person, so it’s wonderful to connect.

We’re connecting our international community. We connect with the community at large through celebrating the United Nations Day as well.

Woman 1: Since I retired five years ago from a very busy 35 years of Nursing, I’ve become stronger and more resilient, both physically and emotionally.

I feel like I’m continually learning and growing, and I’ve made friends from around the world.

Woman 2: As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think I’d be mobile at all I wasn’t for my Tai Chi, and it’s really become part of my life – it’s part of me.

Man 1: After six and a half years, 89 years old, there’s a lot of things that I can do now that I couldn’t do at 83.

I can stand on one foot, put my pants on, and I can get down on the floor, sit cross-legged and the most important thing – I can get back up again.

Man 2: I had a real problem with my fingers; I couldn’t stretch them enough. I’ve got pain in my fingers, so you will understand I didn’t like to play the piano at the time.

But by doing Tai Chi every day, I could stretch my fingers much better than before.

Tai Chi for me is a gift.

Here is what older participants are saying about practising Taoist Tai Chi® arts

As a younger woman I was busy with family and work. I didn’t always look after myself and experienced debilitating back pain and osteoarthritis. At 55, I had both hips replaced and about 4 years after that I started Taoist Tai Chi® arts. I loved it right away! Within the first month my daughter said “You are walking differently Mom”.

Today I can say Taoist Tai Chi® practice has changed my life physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I feel more balanced, calmer and energetic, ready to take on life’s challenges with an open heart, happy to help others. I am very blessed to be a part of this supportive organization and to work with people who collaborate for peace and harmony locally, regionally and internationally.

– Judy, British Columbia

The Taoist Tai Chi Arts have given me a path to get better in all facets of my life; my body is stronger, I am much more relaxed and I feel full with purpose. I am so looking forward to my 80’s!

– Bob, Ontario

My Taoist Tai Chi® practice kept me going when my husband was going through significant health issues. It gave me physical and emotional support.

It exercises the whole physiology including muscular, skeletal and circulatory systems, as well as tendons, joints, connective tissue and organs, increasing strength, flexibility and resilience, whatever our condition. It is a form of moving meditation that has a penetrating and relaxing effect on the nervous system and the brain, reducing anxiety, lightening the spirit, calming and clearing the mind.
