Tai Chi - The regular practice of Tai Chi can help improve overall health by strengthening your cardiovascular system and help with balance issues.
TAI CHI is a Chinese martial art that is primarily practiced for its health benefits including a means for dealing with tension and stress. There are two basic types of martial arts, the hard martial arts and the soft style. Tai Chi is considered a “soft” style, though regular practice provides for an excellent low cardio toning workout.
TAI CHI emphasizes complete relaxation and is essentially taught as a form of meditation in motion. The mind becomes quiet, as the body moves to rejuvenate and strengthen itself. Soft, slow, flowing and gentle movements built on the development of balance, coordination and strong energy flow. This creates a healthful and rewarding treat to daily living. This is an excellent couples activity.
