    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...

    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...

    Water Tai Chi

    I've been doing Tai Chi for a few months now, but at my local aquatics center.  The instructor once said to everyone not to focus on her, the water or on the surroundings. I didn't realize it until that point, I totally zone out while in that class. I guess that's the point...
