BACK TO LIFE
In the following sessions, moves that had seemed impossible start to make a bit more sense. While I’m only too aware that tai chi isn’t something you can master in a month, I hope I at least look a little less clumsy during the final session.
By the end of the month the pain I had been feeling in my back is drastically reduced. I’ve found that I automatically correct my posture away from the class and I even find it easier to quickly shift my weight for kicking during Muay Thai training. So don’t be tempted to dismiss tai chi as a gentle relaxation tool for elderly people – I can assure you it has useful, real-world benefits. And the fact that you can keep doing it in your retirement years is surely a bonus. For Mei Quan Academy classes visit taichinews.com
