If you've ever seen people grouped moving gracefully in unison in a dance-like exercise in your local park, gym, or community center, you have witnessed the ancient Chinese arts of Tai Chi (Taiji) and Qigong. Tai Chi improves their health, strength, balance, coordination, concentration, and mental well being. Most importantly, they are having fun while doing so! You can enjoy all these benefits yourself, regardless of your current level of physical fitness.
The slow-motion moves of tai chi and Qigong utilize more of your muscles than other exercises, giving you a total-body workout. Since the moves are fluid and not rapid, the strain on your joints and ligament is kept at a bare minimum, reducing injury. All ages enjoy tai chi qigong and meditation, while the low intensity of the movements makes them especially well-suited for older people.
