(Minghui.org) A representative of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) in Missouri City, Texas, invited practitioners to teach its members the Falun Dafa exercises. The workshop was held at the Missouri City Tennis and Recreation Center, which is in the Houston metropolitan area, on January 13, 2020. 

Many of the AARP members at the workshop said they could sense strong energy while they were doing the exercises and felt very relaxed afterward. Before she did the exercises, one of the participants was unable to lift her arms due to pain. Afterward, she could rotate them. 

Boddy, who is with AARP, had met the practitioners at a health expo and learned that Falun Dafa boosts one's physical and mental health. He arranged for the workshop and invited the practitioners to demonstrate the Falun Dafa exercises.

She was determined to continue doing the exercises.
