Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise that is able to maintain strength, flexibility, balance and aerobic conditioning. According to Harvard Health article, Tai Chi can improve both lower-body strength and upper-body strength. In addition, when practiced regularly, Tai Chi can be comparable to resistance training and brisk walking. Moreover, Tai Chi enhances balance and, according to some studies, reduces the risk of falling down. Proprioception — the ability to sense the position of one’s body in space — declines with age. Tai chi helps train this sense, which is a function of sensory neurons in the inner ear and stretch receptors in the muscles and ligaments. Tai chi also boosts flexibility, which makes it easier to recover from a stumble. Fear of falling can make you more likely to fall; some studies have found that tai chi training helps reduce that fear. (Source)
