Tai chi is a form of mind-body exercise that is based on slow, flowing, yet controlled movements that have a calming, soothing effect on the mind and emotions, and a relaxing, releasing effect on the body.
To help meet a growing need we have now designed new video programs that allow you to benefit from all the amazing health benefits Tai Chi is known for in the comfort and safety of your own home and in a flexible format that allows you to practice according to your own schedule and in time durations that meet your needs.
Our videos are designed specifically for beginners and go at a slow, easy-to-follow pace with clear, detailed instructions.
Recent studies show that Tai Chi can help to strengthen the heart, build better balance, improve flexibility, slow the onset of dementia, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, help relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and much more. And everyone can benefit from this practice no matter what age or fitness level.
Tai Chi offers a wonderful alternative or compliment to other fitness activities. What makes it different from other types of exercise is that it approaches the body as one interconnected system. With the follow-along video instruction you will learn to integrate the upper body with the lower body and the right side with the left.
The practice of Tai Chi will improve the way one's body moves through the day, putting less stress on the joints while increasing flexibility and strength.
The benefits of tai chi, however, go beyond the physical body. It can help one function and cope better mentally and emotionally in everyday life. It is known to foster a calm and focused mind and promote clarity of thought. So much so, Tai Chi is being used more and more to help with dementia and cognitive issues.
With this convenient, at-home program you can ease pain, reduce stress, strengthen the heart and immune function, improve balance and flexibility ... and more with an easy to follow Tai Chi home-practice.
The regular practice of tai chi is widely recognized as one of the most powerful ways to improve both physical and mental health. It has been shown to help with:
Better Balance: Studies show older adults who did tai chi one to three times a week were 43% less likely to fall, and they cut their risk of injury in half
Pain Relief: Tai chi offers significant relief from back, neck, arthritis, and fibromyalgia pain
A Sharper Mind: It’s shown to help reduce age-related cognitive decline ... and even slow dementia.
Improved Mood: In 82% of studies, tai chi greatly improved mood and lowered anxiety. It has also shown to be an effective treatment for depression.
This video also covers the important health and safety aspects of good body structure and alignment, i.e. placement of the knees and feet for good support of the knees; proper alignment of the spine for better balance and reduced strain in the neck and lower back. As well, the all-important element of full and continuous breathing is explained and continuously touched upon throughout the presentation.
