What are the benefits of Tai Chi?
Here's what Harvard University has to say:
Although Tai Chi is slow and gentle and doesn't leave you breathless, it addresses the key components of fitness - muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and to a lesser degree aerobic conditioning.
Balance and flexibility
Tai Chi improves balance and, according to some studies, reduces falls. Tai Chi can boost upper and lower body flexibility.
Tai Chi can improve both lower and upper body strength.
Tai Chi strengthens both the lower and upper extremities and also the core muscles of the back and abdomen.
When practiced regularly, Tai Chi can be comparable to resistance training and brisk walking.
