What Can I Expect From a Tai Chi Class?

It’s hard to explain Tai chi until you experience it for yourself, but you can expect to move mindfully through a series of flowing postures. In this sense, Tai chi is similar to yoga. However, Tai chi focuses much more on transitions between movement (stepping), weight shifts, and hand motions.

The general premise of a Tai chi class involves cultivating internal energy, or “Qi.” As you move through a sequence of postures, you learn to engage your breath, focus your mind, and build internal strength.

Sound confusing yet? We promise that after taking your first few Tai chi classes, it’ll all start to make sense.

If you have any questions, call Steel Fitness Premier and chat with us about Tai chi!

Benefits of Tai Chi

Tai chi wouldn’t have such an influence in both the eastern and western hemispheres if it wasn’t for the benefits. A part of the greater “Qigong” umbrella of Chinese martial arts, Tai chi has been practiced for centuries.

Benefits of taking Tai chi classes include:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved balance
  • Enhanced muscle strength and stamina
  • Promotes heart health
  • Alleviates stress, anxiety and depression,
  • Improves mental focus

Who Should Take Tai Chi Classes?

Tai chi is low-impact, so it’s incredibly beneficial for individuals who might not enjoy more traditional group exercise classes.

Consider taking a Tai chi class if you live with any of these conditions:

  • Limited physical mobility (especially for older adults)
  • Chronic stress or depression
  • Heart disease, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol
  • Muscle pain or fatigue
  • Fatigue or insomnia
  • Arthritis or joint pain
  • Trouble focusing, including ADD or ADHD
