Why Tai Chi . . .
This holistic system uses movements, breathing patterns, body posture, and meditation to promote optimal health
Tai chi can help in many areas of health, improving flexibility and muscle strength. The ancient practice is thought to aid in the treatment of diseases such as arthritis, cancer, skin diseases, and depression, among others.
Tai chi puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, which makes it safe for all fitness levels and ages. Low-impact, makes it especially suitable for older adults and those who are not accustomed to strenuous exercise or joint issues. Tai chi is a safe.
The practice doesn’t require specialized equipment. You can do tai chi anywhere, outside or inside, with a group of people or alone. It's really up to you. You simply have to learn the concepts of the ancient practice and apply them to your lifestyle.
Movements flow from one to another, with your body weight shifting from right leg to left. During meditation. Keep your mind clear and calm while concentrating on your inner self. Exhale stale air and toxins from your lungs while breathing in fresh air. This deep breathing will exercise your lung muscles.
Tai chi can make your brain bigger. Studies by the University of South Florida showed older adults who practiced tai chi three times a week for an extended period had increased brain volume. The hippocampus, the brain region associated with learning and memory, increases in conjunction with tai chi.
Regular meditation practice helps the brain better process stress and learning something new improves the neurons pathways, which rewires your brain and people who practice tai chi are able to redirect the stress of life into something that keeps them moving forward in a positive direction.
