Tai Chi and Qi Gong can be practiced by people of all ages and nearly any fitness level. As a low-impact exercise, it strengthens the body with minimal stress to the joints. It trains one to utilize deeper structural muscles which strengthen the tendons and bones. Tai Chi teaches you to move with effortless grace, a skill that can be applied to any activity from running, skiing, rock climbing, and hockey to walking, lifting objects, and even playing a musical instrument.
