    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. ...

    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...

    2 Weeks and Loving It

    I've been meditating for around a year but wanted to exercise as well. I joined a Tai Chi class and so far (2 weeks in) we've been doing Qi Gong really, but I already feel much more energised.

    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...

    Martial Arts And Meditation

    It seems very healthy. Good for the body and mind. I'm very interested in it right now. I would love to learn it. If only I had the transportation (or whatever) to get somewhere to study it.
