TAI CHI

Hot diggity, I'm now signed up for Tai Chi class. The class starts this Friday. I'm looking forward to this. I'm pumped. I'm ready. I'm inspired.... But, what do you wear for Tai Chi? Shorts, lounge pants, sweats, ninja outfit, pajamas? I've got everything covered, except for pajamas and ninja outfit. And do you need to bring anything else with you to class? 

I'm hoping that I'll be able to get more limber, and be able to move and bend a lot easier than I do now. They say that it is low impact and easier on your body, good exercise for mind and body. I can use some improvement on the body. The mind. . . that's something that went into the waste basket a long time ago, according to some of my friends.  

This is going to be neat. I'll be a Taekwondo, Karate, Judo, Kung Fu Ninja Turtle when I learn this stuff. As long as my opponent moves as slow or slower than me. I should be able to kick some major butt playing pickle ball later on. After, I learn some of this Tai Chi.

So, away I go Friday to check this out. Wish me luck. Hoping for a more limber body in a few weeks.

  1. Flier - when i was doing my Korean language training my teacher took me a tai chi class because she said i was too hyper and my brain never shut off. i did tai chi for years. it is a wonderfully relaxing set of movements and it WILL make you way more limber. the movements are slow and gentle but after only a few classes you will feel the difference. in certain parts of china, korea and japan they have 30 minute free, public classes out doors for anyone who wants to participate - people are actually encouraged to participate.

    i am very happy to hear that you will be starting tai chi. i think you will like it. and if so, take kathi with you on the next visit. as for what to wear, wear whatever is comfortable like pajama pants, sweatpants and a loose-fitting t-shirt.

    sending much love to you and kathi, and wishing you both the best in 2016! your friend,

    1. kymber, I'm really looking forward to this class. I've got a outfit that should make me fit right in with everyone else. After a few classes, I will show Kathi some of the moves, and then try to get her to sign up also.

      Thanks ever so much for stopping by.
      Our love and prayers to all of you.
