I Do Not Know How I Feel About It (Tai Chi)
Thursday, October 31, 2013
I still can't figure out whether I like Tai Chi or not.
There is a "field trip" happening in two weeks, with a couple of beginner classes from nearby cities going to the Retreat for lunch and a tour. Part of me wants to sign up and go, and part of me says it's silly to do that if I am only going to give up Tai Chi after this 10 week class is finished.
I keep saying I want to practice in a room with mirrors -- well, apparently a nearby city has a dedicated building with a proper studio that has mirrors on the walls. Maybe if I popped over there sometime I could get a sense of how I look when I am doing Tai Chi.
I am really concentrating these days on taking smaller steps and placing my feet in such a way that the movements flow better. That's sort of why I feel that giving up after one 10-week session would not be doing justice to it. It seems like it takes plenty of practice to get halfway competent, and I have certainly not given it enough time yet.
Again, I can't decide whether I keep going because it was a lot of money to spend on classes only to not go, or whether I actually like it.
Is that weird?
