A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with John Rundle in Queensland. John invited me to learn the basic movements of Tai Chi in a class that was held down at one of the local beaches. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend.
Just recently, John left a comment on my “We Gotta Move” page where he recommended Tai Chi as a wonderful slow-movement exercise for me to consider adding as something we can do from home… to get us moving!
I had one of those “Ah-ha!” moments… you know, I hadn’t really thought about it again, but I decided to right away go and see what I could find online. I found a good video where they lead you through 18 various moves… immediately I stood up, cleared a space, and followed along with them. Well I can say that I loved it! It was so beautiful that I made a decision right then and there that I will be adding this into my movement regime.
I will say that I’m only interested in the exercise part of Tai Chi… anyway, I have no idea what it’s about apart from what I saw this morning. I do know that my mother used to do Tai Chi but she really didn’t talk about it one way or another.
I know some people will think it’s only for older people, but straight away I could see the advantages of consistently following these movements. I don’t know how often you are supposed to do it… maybe someone can tell me that… please!
Thanks John… see how we can all benefit from one little comment… love it!
