Tai Chi utilizes slow routines and delicate movements to achieve a sense of relaxation. In Asia, Tai Chi has been used for many years as an early morning group exercise. It's believed to be a great way to relieve stress after a hard day’s work or to calm the mind in the morning. Some medical studies support its effectiveness as an alternative exercise and a form of martial arts therapy. With Tai Chi’s slow movements, it has become a popular exercise with Senior Fitness, although the benefits of Tae Chi are open to everyone.
Duration of Class: Tai Chi classes range from 45-90 minutes. Times close to sunset or sunrise are believed to have special benefits but classes at these times are not necessary to enjoy a Tai Chi workout.
