In Harvard Health’s Introduction to Tai Chi you’ll learn how tai chi can help your health in so many ways. One of the keys to tai chi that makes it different from other types of exercise is that it views the body as one interconnected system. You won’t do bicep curls or work on your glutes. Instead through video instruction you’ll learn how to integrate the upper body with the lower body and the right side with the left.
By practicing tai chi you’ll improve the way your body moves through the day putting less stress on your joints while increasing your flexibility and strength.
