What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese exercise system that uses slow, smooth, body movements to achieve a state of relaxation of both body and mind. Commonly referred to as “meditation in motion”, Tai Chi is characterized by methodically slow, continuous and circular movements designed to stretch the body, promote balance and reduce stress. Participants are encouraged to move only within their level of comfort to ensure safety while practicing Tai Chi. Other benefits of Tai Chi included improved posture and coordination. The movements are coordinated with deep breathing which promotes concentration and focus which helps people be “in the moment” while practicing Tai chi. May have reported a feeling of relaxation and focus and calm as a result of practicing Tai Chi.
