Parking Lot Exercise

Driving through Sarasota earlier this week, I was a bit surprised to see a group of people lined up in a parking lot with their arms outstretched.  It was enough for me to turn around and investigate.  Turns out it was a tai chi class for the East-West College of Natural Medicine, which I didn't know existed in Sarasota.  Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to talk with the instructor.  But, I love how the eyes of two students (woman in pink and the woman in maroon skirt) are locked on the instructor who is out of frame.

Have you seen them doing this on the beach? It's pretty cool to watch, especially if it's an advanced class.

I'm not a group exerciser (prefer to go to the fitness center on my own), but I enjoy seeing people do it. This photo is a fun one.

I need to look up this class. I've been wanting to learn tai chi for years.
