Tai Chi is an “internal” Chinese martial art, practiced for its many health benefits. The movements are slow and deliberate, and are coordinated with specific breathing patterns. Tai Chi is a great exercise program for people of all ages and physical abilities; a great cross-training program for athletes.
A low-impact, weight-bearing exercise, Tai Chi has been shown to improve cardiopulmonary fitness, bone health, endurance and coordination. It also can be “played” to relax and re-energize. And, it's good for the brain!
Regular practice can provide:
- Improved physical conditioning, muscle strength, coordination and flexibility
- Improved balance and a lower risk for falls, especially in elderly people
- Increased range of motion in the joints
- Improved breathing
- Reduced pain and stiffness
Studies also show promise that Tai Chi practice may be beneficial in treating hypertension, osteoarthritis, Parkinson's, fibromyalgia and sleep problems.
