Tai chi offers a host of benefits for older adults. It’s a low-impact exercise ideal for seniors with limited mobility or recovering from injury. Tai chi corrects poor posture habits. It strengthens muscles, stabilizes joints, increases balance and boosts mobility confidence, reducing the likelihood of falls. A growing body of research has demonstrated tai chi’s effectiveness in lowering blood pressure, alleviating arthritis, easing anxiety and depression, delaying the onset of dementia and alleviating Parkinson’s symptoms. Seniors who routinely practice tai chi are active and social, enjoying a higher quality of life.
