I started Tai Chi beginner class this past Tuesday night. It is a class of about 9 students, and I am the youngest there by about 15 years. I missed only one week, which is good because I thought I had missed two. Since I had also attended the session at the Museum, I wasn't as far behind as I could have been.
I haven't totally formed an opinion yet on whether or not I "love" it. I am neutral, but it is still a very early stage. I am going to have to force myself to slow down as I found I was rushing some of the moves. Being high-strung and in need of some relaxation, my automatic reaction is to do things quickly. Hopefully I can learn to slow down, and gain some benefit from a slower pace. I have a need for something to keep me on an even keel, to be less emotional, not as worried.
I also found I was stretching some of the moves further than intended. I think that comes from having done some yoga. Tai Chi is not an activity in which you push your limits of flexibility; it is quite the opposite. I will have to make that adjustment.
I think I will continue through the beginner course and see what comes of it, and whether I want to join the continuing program. I would still really like to join a yoga class, but haven't managed to make it important enough to research where to go/when it is/etc.
