Tai chi (Chi Kung) combines deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements.
Performed as a low-impact form of exercise, it won’t put much pressure on your bones and joints and most people should be able to do it. It is ideal for inactive older people wanting to raise their activity levels gently and gradually.
Studies have shown that Chi Kung can help to reduce stress, improve balance and general mobility, and increase muscle strength in the legs. Some research suggests that tai chi can reduce the risk of falls.
