There are two different styles of martial arts: external style and internal style. The external style martial arts focus on empowering the muscles and strengthening the body. Yang style Tai Chi is an internal style which is more oriented in focusing the mind and strengthening the Qi( energy). Because of these unique characteristics, many practitioners exercise

Tai Chi as moving meditation

regardless of age and gender.

As you practice Tai Chi, 

the harmony of body, mind and Qi

 can be achieved. Since it also helps to develop a deeper sense of awareness of the body, Tai Chi improves balancing skills and helps to attain proper posture. Tai Chi, not only has many benefits as a form of martial arts, it also helps to improve your skills in various sports like golf, tennis and so on. This may be the reason for its popularity among professional athletes who practice Tai Chi along with meditation.
