Tai Chi

Tai Chi - An ancient, self-healing art for mind, body and spirit, a holistic; low-impact exercise system for all ages and abilities; meditative movement. When I first witnessed Tai Chi in a park in Hong Kong I was mesmerized. Many, many years later, I am now able to pursue my growing interest. This doesn't mean that I will give up my high impact exercise program; this will be in addition to that. A couple weeks ago I finished my second class on Tai Chi. The video below is my instructor performing the traditional Yang Family Short Form of Tai Chi. While Tai Chi isn't difficult, remembering the movements with great precision is very challenging. In our classes we learned about Tai Chi, a variety of exercises, and the first fifteen seconds or so of the form. It will take me a long, long time to learn this complete form!
