The health benefits of Tai Chi for retirees

Renaissance residents discover an ancient form of movement

Pat Warburton and her husband Ken moved to Renaissance Retirement Living at Victoria Point 12 years ago. It didn’t take long for Pat to join the Tai Chi group.

Often described as ‘meditation in motion,’ Tai Chi has also been referred to as ‘medication in motion’ thanks to its numerous health benefits.
