Tai Chi for a Healthy Heart (Streaming)
Duration: 45 min
Strengthen Your Heart, Improve Your Circulation
Harvard Medical School says Tai Chi may be the best exercise for a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. In this program, Tai Chi Master-teacher David-Dorian Ross guides you through a easy follow-along healthy heart workout using the beautiful and gentle movements of Tai Chi.
A healthy heart and circulatory system is so important because that’s how oxygen is delivered throughout your body, and oxygen is the key ingredient to your metabolism. Poor circulation contributes to all kinds of adverse health conditions, like diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimers and stroke. In Tai Chi, it is understood that your blood, oxygen, and energy, or Qi, circulate together and are the basis of your life. Raising your heart rate strengthens the heart, improves your vascular health, and raises your energy.
The American College of Sports Medicine says we need 30 minutes of continuous moderate-intensity motion to maintain basic cardiovascular health. Unlike most forms of exercise, Tai Chi movements use every part of your body all at once. This means for every minute you practice Tai Chi exercise, you’re getting as much as four times the activity as in other workouts. And yet, it’s gentle enough that even a beginner of any age or fitness level can develop a healthier heart with Tai Chi. And for an added bonus, you’ll find that Tai Chi improves your mood and raises your spirit.
