Tai chi means balance - yin/yang balance - or balance of opposing forces. Much like yoga, it can be practiced for health. It is particularly good for balance, building strength in the legs and improving energy, all while creating a peaceful state of mind.
Unlike yoga, the movements are functional. While one class per week is enough to learn, a daily home practice is important to achieve benefits and remember previous moves of the form as you advance.
