Tai chi is a holistic, low-impact exercise that packs a myriad of physical and mental health benefits into its sequences of gentle, flowing movements. Tai chi is an effective stress-management tool that develops mind/body awareness. A continued tai chi practice builds resilience, helping us stay positive. Those who practice tai chi experience better sleep quality. Tai chi classes provide an opportunity to connect with others in a shared activity—staving off the damaging effects of loneliness.
Good health involves more than the condition of our bodies. Mental and emotional well-being are required, too. To achieve good health, we must address the state of the mind, body and spirit. Our busy modern lifestyle makes it hard to find time to manage all three aspects of wellness. However, many have discovered that a moving meditation practice like tai chi is ideal for simultaneously improving mental, emotional and physical health.
