If you've recently celebrated a landmark birthday, you may be thinking about the milestones in your life.

Were you too busy on Super Bowl Sunday watching the commercials to notice that groundhog Punxsutawney Phil had emerged from his burrow? He saw his shadow and went back in to hibernate predicting that the blistery winter weather much of the country has been experiencing will last for another six weeks.

In this video clip I am demonstrating a slow and controlled Tai Chi walk. You will only see the leg movements because we are focusing on the weight bearing aspect of this exercise as well as balance. Notice that the exercise is performed slowly, with controlled movements to recruit several different muscle groups. Watch the clip as many times as you need before performing the walk to make sure you are clear on the proper movements. As mentioned in the video, you want to maintain the proper posture and keep the core tight. First I put my legs in a staggered stance...
