Beginners Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a slow motion, low impact set of movements that benefits the mind and the body. Some of the benefits include improved balance and flexibility, better focus and concentration, stress reduction and overall well-being . The movements are done in a slow relaxed coordinated manner that helps increase circulation to the brain and the internal organs. Tai chi helps regulate the nervous system, which sends signals to the brain. Each movement has a specific name and purpose. Concentrating on these movements keeps the mind alert and sharpens our reaction skills.
The movements are done in combination with breathing and footwork. Tai chi is beneficial to people of all ages.
Tai chi involves moving the waist, hips, knees and ankles, all which are important for overall mobility. As people progress in life being able to maintain their mobility is an important factor in determining their independence which has a huge impact on our outlook upon life.
