Tai chi aims to address the body and mind as an interconnected system and to improve mental and physical health while benefiting posture, balance, flexibility and strength. Tai chi includes sequences of slow movements coordinated with deep breathing and mental focus. Tai chi can be practiced alone or with a group of people in a class.
