Mega thanks to my sister, MIM, for cluing me into the power of Tai Chi. Mind you, I scoffed when she disclosed its remarkable benefits – watching her go through the moves looked like a Saturday Night Live skit, they were so s l o w. Compounding my disbelief was the fact my sister was doing them in a wheelchair. Seriously? How could it make a difference?
Thank goodness I was open to discovering Tai Chi’s rocking powers, especially for people like Mim, whose physical condition left her toodling about on wheels. And not just physically stronger – – mentally too!
Additional mega thanks to the great Jane Brody for yesterday’s excellent NY Times article on the benefits of Tai Chi – read, learn, do!
