tai chi moves
I was at the park with my (new!) husband Jeremy this morning.
He practices tai chi, and was teaching me some basics. I felt calm and smooth and relaxed from the practice.
I liked it. Actually, I reluctantly liked it; A lot of the warm ups seemed the exact opposite of what I have learned in yoga is healthy for the body.
Jeremy was bouncing while he stretched, turning his feet at odd angles before bending forward, and leaning back and whipping forward.
But the thing is, he has had major injuries in the past, and this practice was a huge part of his recovery.
So the moral of this story is just to move, not too worry too much about rules, and just move.
Really, just move your body and your mind and your health will follow.
