Tai Chi - CorssFit For Life

Since 1988

As a form of physical exercise performed regularly, Tai Chi addresses the key components of fitness: muscle strength, flexibility, and balance by engaging every major muscle and joint group in the body. Even bone strength can be improved. Good posture is essential in the practice of Tai Chi not only for the sequence of movements but also for the flow of energy throughout the body. Although body parts move independently of one another, the body itself moves as one unit.

Tai Chi movement can be adapted or modified based on the needs of the individual. It can be performed at a slower or faster pace; with deeper, or shorter stances. It can be practiced standing or sitting which allows Tai Chi to be performed by those confined to a wheelchair or recovering from surgery. Regardless of how it is practiced, Tai Chi will have a positive effect on your range of movement.

The practice of Tai Chi has been shown to reduce the risk of injuries related to diminished stability. Senior citizen who practice Tai Chi regularly, have reportedly shown lower incidences of falls compared to their counterparts who do not. A result believed to be induced by improved gait stability, coordination and balance.
