T’ai Chi for Seniors. H OW TO G AIN FLEXIBILITY, STRENGTH, AND I NNER PEACE By Sifu Philip Bonifonte.

I have been into numerous martial arts (Judo, Jujutsu, and Karate-Do) and weapons (Kenjutsu, Wakizashi Jutsu, and Tanto-Jutsu) systems over the years. I have also studied Tai Chi and Qigong for many years with Sifu Laurie Manning earning my teaching certificate.
About six years ago I as diagnosed with a fairly rare neurological condition and had to practice my Tai Chi and Qigong from a seated position. I have been teaching my seated Tai-Chi/Qigong course to seniors for quite a while. I picked up this book (Tai Chi for seniors: How to gain flexibility, strength, and inner peace by Sifu Philip Bonifonte) at a bargain price and found it to be a good introduction to Tai Chi and Qigong.

This large paperback book is organized into three parts with 12 chapters. Part one: living in the past: covers what is Tai Chi, the benefits of practicing Tai Chi, a brief explanation of Qigong exercises and preparing to practice Tai Chi. The second part: Living in the past: focuses on warm up exercises, Qigong exercises, standing Tai Chi exercises and seated adaptations of Tai Chi and Qigong. The third part: Living in the future explains how to do meditation exercises, the philosophy (Taoism) of Tai Chi. The conclusion explains that in Tai Chi and Qigong there are no belts like other martial arts.

In conclusion, this book has some helpful information; however, the photographs were not always clear and without a Sifu (teacher) it would difficult for anyone, not just seniors, to follow the material. Using this book in combination with a hands-on approach with a teacher is the best way to actually learn Tai Chi and Qigong.

This book is fantastic. I purchased this because I have serious degenerative arthritis in just about every joint. Tai Chi is the best way to realign your body, this info was from arthritis specialists, pain management specialists and the most remarkable physical therapist I've every had the honor to know. He took to the book and it's teachings so much that I made a gift of it to him. He applies these methods to just about every patient he helps. Now, I've got to buy me another one!

Excellent book - better than expected. The author is very experienced and gives a satisfying depiction of the arts of Tai Chi and Chi Kung and how they can be used to help seniors gain improved health and mobility. This book is not a quick, shallow how-to but rather a rich, rewarding instruction that conveys the ideals and essence of an ancient art that it, and the reader, well deserve.

We plan on using this asa our guide in our senior residence
It doesn't contain step by step pictures on how each movement is performed. So far I have not found it as helpful as I thought it would be.
