Mindful exercise improves well-being for people with dementia

Designed for people with dementia, the Happy Antics program began by showing participants a picture of an object while the instructor spoke briefly about it. Participants were encouraged to discuss the object and ask questions. This activity was followed by exercises incorporating principles of tai chi, yoga, qigong and dance. Each session ended with a short, guided meditation activity that focused on breathing and mindful awareness.
