A Chinese martial art dating back some 600 years, Tai Chi today is a popular exercise program in which almost anyone can participate. Tai Chi consists of gentle, fluid movements that are relaxed and slow in tempo, leading some to call it “meditation in motion.” Tai Chi has a multitude of health and wellness benefits including muscle strengthening, cardiovascular fitness, joint flexibility, and improvement in balance, posture, and concentration (memory). It has also been found to reduce stress and blood pressure, and best of all, it’s fun to do!
