Ancient art for healing
Originating in China, tai chi is a practice that combines control of movement and breathing with mindfulness. This ancient Chinese practice involves performing a series of movements in a slow, focused manner.
Regular practice of Tai Chi has many benefits, including:
- Improved balance and flexibility, reducing your risk of falls
- Improved circulation and heart health
- Improved muscle strength.
Tai Chi has also been known to improve health conditions, such as high or low blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, respiratory conditions and weight issues.
Practiced regularly it is known to significantly improve health and wellbeing.
