Exercises for Older Adults: Tai Chi
Tai Chi was originally used to teach self-defence, but has since developed into a gentle exercise that’s often used to relieve stress.
Tai Chi is often performed using graceful, flowing movements. The exercise encourages you to practise deep breathing, whilst focusing on stretching your body.
Typically, you’ll move through each posture without pausing. This ensures that you’re constantly in motion throughout the session.
This low impact form of exercise helps to improve your flexibility and increase your fitness levels and stamina.
