TAI CHI PRACTICE

This low-impact, slow-movement, mind body practice is often described as “meditation in motion”. Tai Chi differs from other forms of exercise in many respects. Movements are fluent and never forced, muscles are relaxed, joints are not fully extended, and the muscle tissue is not over stretched. Tai Chi can be easily adaptable for all fitness levels and limitations.

Tai Chi can be helpful for disease management. Many studies suggest Tai Chi can help reduce pain & improve physical function for Arthritis, maintain bone density in postmenopausal woman, lower blood pressure, improve levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and insulin in people at high risk for heart disease. Tai Chi has also been linked to improved balance, walking ability and well-being for Parkinson’s disease.
