T’ai Chi Chu’an improves concentration, breath control, balance, and muscle relaxation. The smooth, slow movements help instill physical confidence, reduce stress, and enhance posture and coordination. In addition, it helps tone muscles in the lower body, especially the thighs, buttocks and calves. T’ai Chi Chu’an can be practiced by everyone. All that’s needed for practice are comfortable shoes and clothing.
