Abstract

Senam Resilinesi (SR) is originated from CFQ (Cosmic Freedom Qigong) which is developed by Hiew (2001). The root of Senam Resiliensi can be traced back from Chinese Taoist philosophy and ancient Javanese culture. Senam Resiliensi consists of four movements, which were all designed for the elderly. The effect of Senam Resiliensi in enhancing quality of life is conducted as a case study on elderly people. The current research aims to illustrate the role of Javanese culture in facilitating the impact of Senam Resiliensi. Data are gathered through questionnaire, observation, short interviews, and nine in-depth interview which were collected from 28 participants from an elderly house at Surakarta who were given the Senam Resiliensi training for two months by proficient trainers. The activity of Senam Resiliensi continued for six months and closely monitored and noted bu researchers every two months. The initial result shows a significant increase in their quality of life. Continues improvement is evident through the decrease of complaints arising from the elderly in relation to their physical condition. Using the grounded interpretive approach and hermeneutic circles (Gadamer, 1975, Schon, 1983), we discovered that Javanese culture played a major role in facilitating Senam Resiliensi impact positively (e.g. “nrimo” (acceptance), “manut” (obedience). “telaten” (endurance). Thus, the success of Senam Resiliensi in improving the quality of life in the elderly is dovetailed with the existence of Javanese culture in the mids of the participants.
