Tai'chi is a calm, soft and graceful exercise, with smooth transitions between movements. The purpose is to help blood circulate throughout the body. Breathing and actions are connected throughout the exercise and there is an emphasis on mind, body and spirit.
As a slow, meditative exercise, Tai'chi is practiced by a large portion of the elderly population in China. It has been studied for its positive effects on memory in the elderly who practice. Studies have also shown that Tai'chi can improve stress, improve balance and help with high blood pressure.
