Tai Chi

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese movement practice that offers a number of health benefits. Research Trusted Source shows that practicing tai chi can improve balance, stability, and flexibility in older people, including those with Parkinson’s disease. Practiced regularly, it can also help reduce pain, especially from knee osteoarthritis, back problems, and fibromyalgia.

Regular practice of tai chi can significantly reduce the risk of falls among older adults. A 2017 review Trusted Source published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society found that tai chi reduced falls by up to 50 percent.

It is important to know that a meditation practice is not based on any religious ideology, nor is it anti-religious. Meditation is a process of learning to calm the mind and the body and reaching a deeper awareness of your spiritual self. Meditation is practiced by people of all faiths.
