I do tai Chi, it is brilliant. One of the websites I use is www.taichiforartritis.com. It is run by a Chinese doctor practicing Western medicine in Australia. There are forums and it is possible to purchase DVDs and books.

I thought it was you, Caroline (seen your name somewhere in Balance)! It's great, isn't it?! Makes me so relaxed and balanced. And my instructor is cute! Laughing

My instructor is cute too, and quite laid back. And my name was in Balance Magazine on the pen friends/chat room page.

Yes tai chi is wonderful. I have a shelf full of DVDs and books about it. I tried airobics, and my belly and boobs were always half a calss behind the rest of me. Tai chi gives me a bit more to think about and my balance has improved too.

I am not the sportiest person I know, and have been told I am the original couch potatoe. I am an intelectual (hear the rest of the family laughing?), so I need something to stimulate brain and body. Tai Chi satisfies brain and body.

If any one wants a list of tai chi websites, let me know, and I will either post it here or eamil them privately. There are quite a few...
