Benefits of Tai Chi
There are many benefits to practising Tai Chi here is a list of benefits that my students have noticed in themselves since participating in my classes.
- Relieves Pain: Tai Chi helps to relieve pain and stiffness, through gently moving the joints of the body through their optimum range of movement.
- Improves Posture: Proper alignment of the spine plays an important part in Tai Chi, which then brings about proper posture in the practitioner.
- Good Workout: Though the moves are slow and gentle Tai Chi is proven to be a good form of aerobic exercise which improves heart and lung function
- Relieves Stress: The gentle stretching and focus on the movements helps the practitioner to relax, and reduces their levels of stress.
- Enhances the flow of Qi: Through the movements of Tai Chi, the meridians (energy pathways) in the body are stretched and invigorated, enhancing the flow of qi through the body.
- Integrates body and mind: When doing Tai Chi one's mind should be on the movements they are doing. This helps to bring the mind into the here and now and stops it wandering.
