Tai Chi and Dance Benefits

Study Shows Tai Chi & Dance
Benefit the Brain in Older Adults

Exercises that engage the mind and body improve memory and other measures of cognitive function. When it comes to taking care of your brain and your body as you age, study suggests you may want to consider adding a dose of ballroom dancing to your health regimen. A new meta-analysis published in December 2018 in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that older adults who participate in mind-body exercises can actually show improvements in several important aspects of brain function, such as memory, verbal fluency, and learning.

Exercises such as Tai Chi and dance, are beneficial for improving global cognition, cognitive flexibility, working memory, verbal fluency, and learning in cognitively intact or impaired older adults. Moderate intensity (60 to 120 minutes of mind-body exercise per week) is recommended as the optimal dose for older adults.
