    The Controlled Movements Appeal to Me.

    From what little I know the movements are like karate or kungfu but without the use of energy or force.  I love the fluid movements and try to imitate them sometimes.  It keeps my wife laughing, waiting for me to fall over or kick a hole in something by mistake. ...

    Mighty Oaks From Little Acorns Grow!

    I had my first Tai Chi lesson today! It's deceptively strenuous-seemed easy then,but a few hours later I'm aching in places I didn't know I had. The ambience is somewhere between a yoga or Pilates class and a typical martial arts class,but with fewer bruises. Lots of analysis of...

    Moving Meditation

    Straight meditation is difficult for me.  Try as I  might, I simply cannot sit...it's probably the ADD.  Tai Chi works though.  The relaxed, deliberate movements help me to relax like nothing else can do.   Adding my brainwave music to that...

    For a Couple Years

     I did Tai Chi for about 3-4 years while I was in school. It was amazing and each time I would go through the movements...a feeling of peace and serenity would wash over me and I never felt so amazing as when I was doing it...I wish I could go back to doing it. I miss it so...
