I’m signed up for a class! The opportunity fell in my lap via a flyer at my chiropractor’s office. A free intro class for Tai Chi, and when I told them I couldn’t afford the class fee upfront, they offered to let me make payments. I felt it stupid to pass this by. I will check this off my list when I finish the class! So far I’m really enjoying my investment. :) 1 month ago

I just joined a class last week. I’ve wanted to do this for years, but it can be hard to find a class that is both affordable and has a convenient time an location. But in the end, the most important factor for me is a good teacher, and I’m really happy with the one I found.
ETA: Oh hey, if anyone reading this is in Toronto ON, here is a link to the group: http://www.meetup.com/tcmtoronto/
It’s not just tai chi, but a more general group for Traditional Chinese Medicine. I highly recommend it. 2 months ago
Chuck Link fought with almost every type of cancer you can think of, as well as hepatitis and failing organs for over 20 years. Upon his death last year, he began teaching me Tai Chi at his humble home in New Mexico. He suggested that practicing Tai Chi and eastern philosophy for many years had helped him survive and combat his ailments. I want to learn Tai Chi to improve my overall well-being and aid in my understanding of the tao. 5 months ago

or anything, but I got the opportunity to learn Tai Chi and get certified to teach it to the residents at work in a very intense 2-day training. It was fun; the biggest piece was that in the workshop they said (not unreasonably) that if we were going to teach Tai Chi, we really ought to be practicing ourselves every day. It came at a very opportune moment for me; I take dance classes but I was looking for some simple exercise that I could do every day. I usually practice while waiting for the bus. 10 months ago
Went again this week. For most of the time we were doing something called ‘pushing hands’ (I think) – it was ok, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first class – we were made to swap partners and I kept getting idiots who were moving their hands and bodies in the wrong direction (which meant that by extension they were pushing ME in the wrong direction >:| ). Also some of the self defense instructions this week seemed a bit vague and random, we were kind of just randomly pushing each other and I didn’t feel like I learned anything from that section of the class.
Pushing hands was pretty cool when we were doing it solo though I guess.
Most likely won’t be going next week because of exams being near, but possibly the week after we will return. 11 months ago
The backs of my legs are STILL aching from that one class! I had no idea I was getting such a work out on my legs…thought the teacher was exaggerating when he said you could tone your legs just from practising Tai Chi Walking! 12 months ago
There are free classes on weekly at my uni and I tried it out today, it was pretty good =]
Wasn’t sure at first, felt a bit daft doing the arm movements etc, possibly shouldn’t have stood at the front of the class on my first try :S
But when we moved onto kicks, fighting stances and some self defense type things it was really good! I enjoyed it and actually felt like I’d learned something even after just the one hour. I plan on going back again next week :) 12 months ago
