Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise that originated in ancient China and improves flexibility while strengthening the body. In this 110-minute video Dr. Paul Lam, a martial artist, specifically gears this Tai Chi workout toward older adults. Instructions are given slowly and there is a lot of repetition. Moves are easy to learn, remember, and practice. The video includes an explanation of Tai Chi, warm-up exercises, five standard movements, four additional movements for progression, and a breathing exercise for relaxation. This workout is also suitable for people with arthritis.
