Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. This graceful form of exercise is used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements.
Tai chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. Each posture flows slowly into the next without pause, ensuring that the body is in constant motion. In fact, because tai chi is a low impact exercise, it is especially suitable for older adults. No experience necessary.
