Tai chi is commonly performed as a low-impact exercise, which means it won’t put much pressure on your bones and joints. This means it's perfect for pretty much anyone to try.
Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, combines deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, Tai Chi is today practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise.
It's ideal for inactive older people wanting to raise their activity levels gently and gradually. Also, many of the Tai Chi movements can be adapted to people with a disability, including wheelchair users.
