Meet Your Neighbor: Lucy Lu

January 2, 2018

I first came to the Forest Hills Senior Center fifteen years ago. At that time, I didn’t know many people here, and I’d never taken a Tai Chi class. I am originally from Taiwan and spent many years traveling the globe for my career, so new experiences never intimidate me. I took my first Tai Chi class in 2003, and though I was nervous at first, I loved how it built strength in my mind and body.
 
Tai Chi combines gentle exercise and mindfulness, and I became quite good at it. I even substitute for the teacher when she is away. Whether I’m taking the class or teaching the class, I feel strong and alert, yet balanced and calm.
