Why should I....

 try Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is a simple yet profound series of movements performed with calm intent.   With practice Tai Chi improves your physical stamina, balance, flexibility, energy level, strength, body awareness and overall health.  Perhaps more interestingly, it also provides stress relief, improves mood, creativity, inner harmony and life balance.   

Your Tai Chi practice can be customized to suit your physical condition, lifestyle and level of interest. 

And it's reasonably priced!  A sincere Tai Chi teacher ensures his/her classes are affordable as Chi is universal energy that is always present and free to us all.


  1. 99 cents......SOlD : ) isn't it amazing how the stuff good for us is truly free love this

  2. Nice use of photos. Love this.

  3. This makes me want to find out more about Tai Chi - thanks!

  4. Sure wish there was an instructor around here. Always wanted to take Tai Chi

  5. @Brenda Stevens - yes, amazing indeed

    @pbquig - thanks

    @Paula Martin - that was my intent :)

    @Leenouch - you can always start with a video - there are some decent ones. But if you plan to study seriously you really need a live teacher.

  6. That is cool. I learned it once watching a video of it. I would like to do that again. =D

  7. I love yoga, but have never tried Tai Chi. I might have to give it a go, though.

  8. I have never tried Tai Chi. I have to check it out :) Cheers, Jenn

  9. Tai Chi would be a challenge for me. I don't have that inner stillness it seems to require, but maybe it could teach me.

  10. I have never tried Tai Chi either. I do love yoga! Great post.


  11. @D Ana - go for it!

    @Word Nerd - I really like yoga as well - depending on the style there are some real similarities with Tai Chi - some real differences too.

    @Jenn - most teachers will let you watch a class, or try one class for a minimal cost.

    @Mojo Writin' - give it a whirl :)

    @Kathy29156 - when I took yoga I would sneak the Tai Chi principals into it.... the teacher couldn't tell! :O

  12. I seriously need Tai-Chi!!! (Either that or a nice long Calgon Bath)! THanks for the info!

  13. I have considered Tai Chi, because I sure could use the peace, but I haven't yet. Sounds like something I'd like.

  14. When I lived in San Francisco I used to see groups of elderly women doing something like that out near North Beach.

  15. @beachlover - a bath works too!

    @Theresa Wiza - it's not for everyone, but those who like it like it a lot.

    @Eccentricity - Tai Chi is great for keeping your body flexible and strong at any age. We have an 87 year old in our class!
