This video is for seniors who are still living independently in the community, it is not a video for frail seniors. The first 10 minutes of this video involves seniors talking about their experiences of having had a fall, what they have learned from these experiences and how they have managed to build daily physical exercise into their days. Facilitated by a seniors fitness instructor and two Tai Chi teachers, the exercise routine can be used to lead a group of seniors through the exercises or it can by used by individuals at home as a daily fitness program. The exercises take about 20 minutes.
