Yoga and Taijiquan 







"But who you are is not a concept in the sky, and it's not a record of you accomplishments
either.  The most original and creative side of you can re-emerge only when you get time
of your own, free time, wide-open time, uncommitted time, time in which to go after dreams
or do absolutely nothing if you choose.  Without it you can't have a self."
-  Barbara Sher, It's Only Too Late If You Don't Start Now, 1998, p 228



"America is growing older at an unprecedented rate. The number of people 65 and older is 
larger than ever before, and those 85 and older constitute the fastest growing segment of the 
population. When the baby boom generation enters its senior years, between 2010 and 2030, 
it is projected that one in five Americans will be over 65."
-  American Geriatric Society,  What is Geriatrics?



"Ten Ways to Inspire People to Keep Fit:  Be a role model; make fitness fun; be both active
and productive; make workouts short and sweet; extoll the benefits; train for a charity event
together; set short-term goals; offer to be a workout partner; use inspirational music; don't 
preach, lecture or nag. "
