I decided that since I am needing to modify my fitness routine this summer, it was high time that I try this Tai Chi thing.

Oh. my. goodness!

I've only had two classes but I am totally in, hook-line-sinker. I guess the timing was never right, but other than that I'm not sure why I never tried it before. I really don't know what is in store for me throughout the summer, since I haven't done the research on progression, etc. I can already tell that it's going to be as hard as anything I've done, mostly because I am over-the-top ADD and OCD. It'll be a good way for me to slow down and focus while at the same time giving me something different for my OCD-self to focus on.

Any long-time practitioners here? How many times per week do you do a full session?

I'm not a long time performer. Just a newbie performer. I recently bought a DVD and have started. It's REALLY hard for me to do something so slow and meditative (seeing as how I'm always a fidgety fiddle).
I like it, and find it very relaxing. There's a class at the gym and I might try it this summer while I'm off (because it's only offered at 10 am- when I'm usually working).
