Tai chi has been practiced in China for hundreds of years but it is now popular around the world. It is a meditative practice and an exercise form with many health benefits for people in all age groups. Tai chi combines breathing, focus and physical movements and is suitable for everyone.

Healthy Exercises for Everyone

Tai chi was originally a form of self-defense but it is also a form of exercise that anyone can practice regardless of fitness level or age. Practitioners move through a sequence of slow, graceful and focused movements while breathing deeply. There are different styles and many variations of the exercises, but all combine movement and breathing.

Regular practice improves flexibility and mobility, helps balance, builds muscle strength, boosts mood and relieves anxiety and stress. Studies are being conducted on the effect of regular practice on improving sleep and lowering blood pressure. Even new students soon notice that practicing tai chi will help to experience a general feeling of well-being.

Relief from Stress and Anxiety

The slow movements are connected to deep breathing, and over time the practice helps to develop concentration skills. Even though tai chi started in ancient China as a martial art, today the sequences of movements are taught as a form of stress relief.

Tai chi is also an excellent form of exercise for the elderly. The movements can be adapted to different body types, age groups and fitness levels, so that anyone can learn a sequence and move through it at their own pace. Many sequences can even be adapted so that you can practice some movements while sitting in a chair, which makes tai chi a great exercise for anyone with limited mobility. Some studies suggest that tai chi can help to improve the quality of life in elderly people with chronic health problems.

These healthy exercises are low impact and the risk of injury is minimal. Tai chi does not require any equipment or previous experience in any kind of exercise. Anyone can start to learn by taking a beginner course or a basic class with an instructor.

Be grateful,
Work with diligence,
Be kind to people.

State in your mind and chant with your mouth.

For improvement of mind and body.
