In Chinese, "tai chi" directly translates as "supreme ultimate". Originally, tai chi was developed as a self-defense strategy that eventually evolved as a graceful form of exercise.
Today, this ancient exercise is known in Chinese culture as being the "supreme ultimate" for your body. Tai chi is meditation in motion as its peaceful constant movements connects the body to the mind.
Some well-established benefits of Tai Chi include:
1. improves balance to prevent falls
2. has preventative effects on heart disease
3. slows the progression of arthritis
4. slows the progression of Alzheimer's
5. help lower blood pressure
6. useful as stress management
7. improves immunity

Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Tai Chi now shows what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries: regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind. This research provides fascinating insight into the underlying physiological mechanisms that explain how Tai Chi actually works.
The Basics
Interconnectedness is the foundation of tai chi. Fluidity between body parts and movements is essential. You should never stop or break between movements. Though tai chi has individual moves for each body part, it is important to focus on transitioning them slowly from one move to the next. This will train your mind to focus on the present movements. Tai-chi is self-paced and non-competitive. This ancient exercise is all about achieving a relaxed state by connecting the mind and body.
Tai chi As Stress-Buster
Tai chi brings the mind and body together. When engaging in this exercise, you must have complete focus on your movements and breathing. Focusing on the present creates a meditative state that promotes calmness and relaxation. When you find that your mind is wandering, simply catch yourself and focus once again at the present moment.
Preliminary research has shown that tai chi does improve one's health. It is known to lower blood pressure, improve balance, alleviate depression, relieve chronic pain and increase energy.
Tai Chi Improves Brain function
A recent Harvard study has even found that tai chi can improve your brain functions. According to Harvard Medical Instructor, Catherine Kerr, "Tai chi is a very interesting form of training because it combines a low-intensity aerobic exercise with a complex, learned, motor sequence. Meditation, motor learning, and attentional focus have all been shown in numerous studies to be associated with training-related changes-including, in some cases, changes in actual brain structure-in specific cortical regions."
