What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise that puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it suitable for many older adults. It is a graceful form of exercise that involves a series of movements, known as forms, which are performed in a slow, focused manner combined with controlled breathing. No special equipment is needed. It can be practiced indoors or outdoors, either alone or in a group
