What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi, which is also referred to as “shadowboxing” is an ancient form of Chinese martial art which is used for self defense training, meditation and health benefits. It involves a series of movements, performed in a slow, focused manner which are accompanied by deep breathing. Tai Chi is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. Postures flow into one another without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.

Throughout the years, Tai Chi has developed many different styles. While some focus on health maintenance, others shift their focus towards the martial arts aspect of tai chi. 

Why should I take up Tai Chi?

While someone who has no previous perception of Tai Chi might see it as mundane at first, experts who have been studying it for a long time claim that its benefits are vast and hard to oversell. When performed regularly it can play a massive role in the overall improvement of one's health. Benefits include:

  • Decrease in stress, anxiety and depression
  • Improved blood pressure
  • Sharper mind and clearer thoughts
  • Improved immunity towards viruses
  • Increase in energy and stamina levels
  • Improved balance, agility and flexibility

Research has shown that even though Tai Chi functions at a slow pace, it holds up when compared to other more strenuous types of exercise. Regular practice is shown to improve fitness levels as well as improve the endurance of the lungs and heart of even grown adults. 

Who can do Tai Chi? 

Tai chi is safe and a great choice for people of all ages and fitness levels. Due to the fact that it is a particularly low-impact type of exercise, it is especially suitable and beneficial for older adults or people with health issues that might be preventing them from other forms of exercise.

Another great benefit of Tai Chi is that it doesn’t require any special equipment and in general is an inexpensive activity. You can practice it essentially anywhere, regardless if it’s at home or out in the nearby park.

Regardless of the low impact of Tai Chi, it is recommended for people with medical issues to train with an expert at least for the first few lessons. This way they’ll quickly figure out exactly how to perform certain exercises and positions and which ones to avoid. 

How do I get started with Tai Chi?

Nowadays there are plenty of options you can choose from if you decide to start practicing Tai Chi. You can watch movies, read books or find useful tutorials on YouTube. However, for complete beginners we’d certainly recommend seeking the guidance of a qualified Tai Chi instructor. This way you’ll be able to gain the full benefits and learn how to properly execute all the poses and movements. Apart from learning specific positions, an instructor will also show you breathing techniques that are a crucial part of Tai Chi.
