U.S. News & World Report: For Better Balance, Tai Chi Beats Yoga
 
On April 8, 2008, U.S. News & World Report published an article called “For Better Balance, Pilates and Tai Chi Beat Yoga”.
 
Started with introducing a preliminary study in how Yoga helps fending off falls, the article quickly states: “Some experts, though, say for better balance and stability while walking, Tai chi and Pilates are superior”.
 
The article cited the co-director of the Fall Prevention Center of Excellence, which is based at University of Southern California, to explain the point: “while Yoga emphasizes static poses, which can be helpful for balance when standing still, Tai Chi and Pilates are more effective at improving motor control and coordination for walking—when most falls occur.”
