Radio Taiso Exercise


Radio taiso exercise is known to be a Japanese exercise but it has its origin in America in the 1920s. It was brought to Japan from America. Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. invented Radio Taiso as Radio calisthenics to inspire Americans to begin their day with a few light and healthy exercises. It was introduced to Japan in 1928 to crown Emperor Hirohito. It was introduced to keep Japanese soldiers as well as children and women fit and healthy at home. It was temporarily banned in 1945 after Japan’s defeat by the opposition. But later in 1951, it was reintroduced by Japan’s public broadcasting network. For more than 70 years Radio Taiso Exercise was a popular morning activity. Now in modern day Radio Taiso is broadcasted every morning at 6:30 without fail to keep the Japanese healthy and active. A tender but upbeat male voice starts the steady exercises, instructing listeners to jump forwards and backward,  stretch their joints and rotate their hips to the beat of a cheerful piano tune. 


The exercises consist of simple calisthenics which can be done by any age group. It consists of two sets of exercises, Radio Taiso number 1 and Radio Taiso number 2. Each set is about 4 minutes long… It consists of 13 steps:

Exercise is a bodily activity maintained or enhanced that provides physical fitness as well as overall wellness. It provides numerous benefits  as follows:

  •  Effective weight management
  •  Strengthens the muscle mass and bones
  •  Improves effectiveness and inability to do work
  •  Increase the health and reduce the risk of getting the disease
  •  Helps in managing chronic illnesses and disabilities
  •  Increases the life span of an individual
  •  Reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases or other metabolic disorders like diabetes hypertension
  •  Provides stress-free life
  •  Balances the body’s hormonal levels
  •  It aids in digestion


  • Splitting the word Ayurveda we get “Aayu ” means gaining age and “Veda” refers to Atharva Veda. Combining these two terms we get that ayurveda is a “Science of Life” which helps in enhancing age by following dinacharya (daily regime) and ritucharya (seasonal regime).
  • Vyayama (exercise) is a part of dinacharya added by our Aacharya thousands of years back. In Ayurveda, Aacharya Charak defined vyayama as any physical activity which is beneficial and is able to bring stability to the body and increase its strength of the body. Okayama (Physical exercise) always has to be done in proper measure or amount without exertion. People who do vyayam on a regular basis do not attract old age, it makes one’s body beautiful, enhances the digestive power, and so on. According to acharya’s amount of exercise should be half of the total strength (aargh bala)  otherwise it will be harmful. Along with a sound body, vyayam provides a sound mind as well.
