Tai chi, a shortened form of the Chinese martial art tai chi chuan, is a mind- body exercise first developed in China. Tai chi has been practiced for millennia because of its many health advantages, including mental and spiritual well-being.

Tai chi is a low impact. Slow, soft motions characterize Tai chi. This ancient technique involves moving continuously while focusing on breathing and meditating. As you progress through a sequence of poses, you concentrate your attention on your body, as well as your thoughts and emotions. You take deep breaths.

When you practice tai chi, you should be standing in a comfortable squatting stance most of the time. Squatting at different depths allows you to tailor the challenge of the workout to your own needs.
