Today, we attended a Tai Chi lesson as part of our Inquiry into health and wellbeing. We were really excited for what was in store for us because no one in our class knew what Tai Chi was. When we arrived at the ‘big hall’ we sat down on the floor and listened to Muan Lim who was our Tai Chi instructor. Some of us noticed that he was wearing a dark blue silky top that had the Ying and Yang symbol. He also wore black pants and black comfortable looking shoes.
Muan Lim started with a little information about himself and where he originated. Then he spoke about the history of Tai Chi. We learnt that Tai Chi used to be all about fighting, but these days it is about calming and relaxing your body. Our class found out that Tay Chi is a form of moving meditation because it centers your mind on one thing and allows you to forget about your worries.
Tai Chi is something that can benefit your health in many ways. It helps you because it allows you to get better mental and spiritual health when you meditate.
We had a great time and we were lucky to have experienced doing Tai Chi with a professional.
