“Since forcing myself into padmasana in Yoga before my hips were flexible enough I put a lot of strain on my knees and since then had problems with them that were gradually getting worse. It had got to the point where a couple of hours walking around town would start getting very painful. I also had a couple of episodes where something “went” in my knee causing excruciating pain. These problems started improving within a couple of weeks of starting Tai Chi with Jan Golden and within a few months they were gone and haven’t returned. I am still careful with my knees – but doing some of the stuff I do now as normal – low squats, sitting on my haunches, etc – were impossible before.”
