Tai Chi is low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, making it generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise.

Tai Chi is a great way to bring balance into your life. People who practice Tai Chi experience a profound sense of wellbeing and connection to everything. Join Galter LifeCenter's Lin Shook Schalek in learning one of her favorite poses, Embrace Tiger.
