    • How funny.  Bernadette was saying hello to me and was telling a few of us that she has joined tai chi.

    • I used to suffer with it bloggermom. And I hated the all over muscle aches, trigger points sensitivy, fatigue, brain fog, so I know how you must feel. And I’m sorry you have to go through this. Personally, I never tried this type of exercise. I would imagine that it is great to reduce stress and offers other health benefits. You’ll have to keep us posted if you decide to try it.

    • I took a class in Tai Chi and in my case, also having fibromylagia, it was actually more painful for me..the twisting and very slow movement was troublesome, especially for my neck and hip area, but you may have luck with it.happy

    • I am a teacher in Tai Chi Chuan. I have studied under Grandmaster Wen Mei Yu for many years.

      also teach Liangong... exercises that are very good and gentle on a painful body.
      My friend has lupus fibro and R/A, I taught her liangong and she bought my teachers book so she could keep up (she lives an hour from me)... She has reported MUCH improvement in joint pain relief, flexibility and weight loss.

      My friend found the Liangong to be more gentle on her body. Now she is ready for the beginning lessons of Tai Chi.

      I have so much to say on this subject, you can pm me or maybe I will blog it.

      The Liangong is a combination of coordinating breath/gentle stretches and gentle movements. Also has componants of self acupressure. The result is improved blood circulation, rise in energy, improvement in range of motion.  

      I love Tai Chi!

    • My 80 year old cousin is a tai chi instructor, and let me tell you something, she walks faster than I do and I’m 30 years younger than she is!

    • Thank you all so much. I was going to start yoga but realized I am so stiff and with my knee having limited movement at this time I started reading about Tai Chi.  I need to find an instructor in my area.  

      Again thank you all so much for the comments.  

      Monika
