In many ways yoga and tai chi are similar and in many ways they are very different! In yoga, each posture is held for a period of time (depending on the style of yoga). Tai chi consists of slow relaxed movements with no pauses from one posture to the next. Both practices heavily focus on using the breath to find inner stillness. Both practices promote many of the same health benefits including improved aerobic capacity, balance and flexibility as well as increased energy and stamina. Both practices are useful for alleviating stress, improving attention and concentration while promoting calmness and relaxation. It is likely either exercise will make you feel healthier, mind and body, you just have to decide to practice one or both!
