Try Tai Chi and See Big Health Benefits of this

Did you recognize that t’ai chi chuan has been found to lower blood pressure, increase bone density, reduce chronic pain, increase flexibility, improve immune perform and scale back stress and depression? This ancient Chinese technique works each the mind and therefore the body by pairing slow movements and shifts of balance with a robust specialization in the breath; it’s typically referred to as moving meditation. Even just practicing for five minutes a day can have big benefits.

During my stay at Kripalu this past weekend, I tried Tai Chi for the first time. I found it quiet and pleasant, almost resembling a slow dance…with yourself (although, there are some great moves you can do with a partner too).

The best half is that after you’ve learned some basic moves, you can practice anywhere— in your living room or even in the local park (you’ve probably seen people practicing in a trance-like vibe).

To learn, you can watch a video if you prefer to practice in private, or if you would like to attend a class, look for one that says Tai Chi for your health (those square measure a lot of target on relaxation and health than precise form).
