Tai Chi and Wheelchair Users

Have you ever suggested Tai Chi as a form of exercise or physical activity for wheelchair users?  This is an excellent activity that most individuals can participate in to assist with postural tone, active range of motion, deep breathing and mind body connection.  Here are a few videos from You Tube demonstrating some Tai Chi.  Would be great for in class activities as well for all children.  One of the goals of Tai Chi is to focus the mind completely on the movements.
