World Tai Chi Day
As part of World Tai Chi Day, a Tai Chi demonstration was held at the Bulloch County Courthouse square. The demonstration was led by Li Li, Ph.D., professor at Georgia Southern University.
The purpose of World Tai Chi Day is to educate those interested or actively involved in Tai Chi about the benefits of Tai Chi. When studied correctly and practiced regularly, Tai Chi can bring many health benefits. The activity can decrease stress, anxiety and depression, boost mood, increase aerobic capacity, enhance energy and stamina, improve flexibility, balance and agility, and strengthen muscles.
Through the Center for Rehabilitation and Independent Living, Li offers a Tai Chi Outreach Program which focuses on reducing the risk of falls through the practice of a simplified 24-style Tai Chi. With minimal stress being put on muscles and joints, the program is generally safe for all ages and fitness levels especially older adults who otherwise may not exercise.
