Tai Chi for All Ages and Abilities
Tai chi (AKA taiji or taijiquan) is an ancient Chinese exercise that combines relaxed, slow movement with a calm, alert mental state. More about tai chi. This slow, gentle non-impact exercise builds strength, balance, flexibility and coordination and is good for your heart, breathing and immune function. Practice it to reduce both anxiety and depression, and to help sleep at night. Research.
