Way back in January I talked about Fred and Freda, two of my lovely tai-chiers, and their “get up and go” can-do attitudes. At the time I commented thus:
“I’ve been pondering on what Freda and Fred have in common. The thing that springs to mind, loud and clear, is a positive “can-do” mindset, despite pain and disability and recovering from illness. A salient reminder in itself of the importance of engaging the body AND mind in every aspect of our tai chi practise, and that bringing together of mind and body is one of tai chi’s great strengths.”
Here is Colin’s, aka “Fred’s”, story. “I’d encourage anyone out there to go out and find a hobby or a sport which gets them on the move”. There’s lots of resources to help you on the British Heart Foundation website. And tai chi is a great way to give your body and mind a gentle but thorough workout. Check out my Devon classes.
