An ancient Chinese discipline, tai chi has been adopted as an effective and beneficial tool for both mind and body.
Consisting of a series of slow, fluid movements and deep breathing, tai chi is a form of exercise that places emphasis on stretching and strength training. It incorporates the idea of yin/yang by having the physical element of one’s body complement their mental self-awareness.
Tai chi is also popular because it’s a low-impact form of exercise. Thus it’s suited for individuals who have trouble with mobility, particular elder adults. In fact, Harvard Medical School has declared that it boosts the same benefits as regular exercise(1).
