At an open house for senior citizens at the Austin Drive Community Center, I had the opportunity to present with my class some of what we do in our Tai Chi class there on Tuesday mornings. Some of the ladies in my class have been doing Tai Chi for over 20 years. The age ranges up to 88 years young! They show up every Tuesday, practice the forms with me, get their energy flowing, and go out with a smile.

The lady who is seated is recovering from a stroke. She credits her son, who also teaches Tai Chi, with her recovery. She started doing Tai Chi in the nursing home during rehab, it helped her with both arm and leg movements, and building strength and stamina. I applaud her for her courage and determination!

After the class demo, the audience got a chance to stand up and get moving, doing some of the warm-up and qigong exercises we also include in the class.
