I am trying to find a Beginner Tai Chi DVD that is specifically designed for those with chronic illness. Do you have any recommendations? Amy
Tai chi is an effective exercise that tailors to a variety of fitness levels & needs. It is commonly recommended for the elderly & people with chronic illness. It focuses on improving balance, strength & concentration. Because of its slow paced & gentle nature, you don’t need to do tai chi specifically designed for chronic illness.
I recommend choosing a beginners DVD but know that as with any exercise, it’s important to listen to your body & do only what you are physically capable of.
