What is Tai Chi?If you are looking for a way to attain this state, Tai Chi is for you. Initially developed for self-defence, it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise used for stress reduction and various other health conditions, from arthritis to diabetes. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements accompanied by deep breathing. Here, you are the artist, your limbs, the brushes, and Tai Chi, the masterful artwork.
Tai Chi: a practice for allMost martial arts often require high physical energy and fitness. Though these also require mental strength, Tai Chi is a practice that tests the mind more than the body. It is:
• Dependent not on your age but the agility of your mind It, therefore, is for all, regardless of age.
• Low impact; it exerts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all. Because tai chi is low impact, it may be especially suitable if you are an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.
• The breathing exercises, improved concentration, slow and gentle movements: in a world of millennials often struggling with stress and the problems of this generation, it is enormously beneficial.
Though not widely known in India, Tai Chi offers so much more than meets the eye.
It provides a multitude of advantages to those that practice it.
