Yeah, you didn't say that, but you didn't say the opposite either, so I just wanted to advise against it. No offense meant. I've taught Taiji Chuan and I can't imagine a beginner learning only from a book.


No harm done.

But I have to admit that I myself am reading the book with the intentions of practicing T'ai Chi myself  Lips sealed .

I'm happy to hear your opinion on that being as you taught it. Maybe I won't try and teach myself, but I don't know. I can't afford to take classes for anything now and I'm not sure if they're even being taught around where I live. I know they teach yoga classes, but it's mostly upper middleclass house wives, and I wouldn't feel comfortable there even if I could afford it.

Thanks, this is actually the sort of thing I was looking for. The other problem I often have with trying to meditate is that I'll attempt to be free of distractions by doing it right before bed. I do tend to be less distracted then, but then I find myself falling asleep. Having more energy is probably a good idea.  Smiley


No problem mana. So far the book has put some things into perspective for me and changed the way I thought of both meditation and exercise. Da Liu makes some very good points.

My situation was almost opposite . . . I started trying to meditate to calm my thoughts so I could overcome my insomnia  Cheesy. My body would be exhausted, but my mind was still racing.

Good luck.
