Standing like a tree


I missed last week’s Tai Chi lesson. I took the car and got so flustered that I couldn’t find a parking space, I turned right round and went home. Yeah, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind for my class.

I am a tree

Yesterday, I was a lot more calmer, and actually managed to park the car without swearing. My lack of practice had caused me concern, but then John told us a wonderful story as we practised the Wu Chi Posture. We held the position for about 10 -15 minutes, which is quite a large part of our one hour lesson. The rest of the lesson was not great, my lack of practice and missing last week’s class really showed as we progressed with learning the Tai Chi short form. However, I went home with a deeper understanding of the Wu Chi posture and am back on the right path…

You too could be a tree hugger

This standing still posture was kept secret for thousands of years, only released to the public domain comparatively recently. Here are some links that will get you embracing the tree.
