Yoga and Tai Chi help with balance

Yoga for MS patients:  Starting with traditional yoga and modifying it to take into the balance, muscle stiffness and fatigue that patients can face.

As you know, I’m a huge proponent of Yoga.  However, there are many modalities.  This study found Tai Chi can help Parkinson’s patients improve functional movement, walking and balance compared to resistance training and stretching.
