In this course we’ll be elucidating:


Internal Mechanics – structure and alignments
What are “energies” in the body?
What should I be doing inside my body when I practice my Tai Chi form?

What is Qi anyway?
How does this apply to common tai chi chuan forms like Yang, Wu, Cheng?

Do I need to already know a tai chi chuan form?

No the class will provide excercises to practice what you learn. Should you later learn a form you can apply what you learn to that.

If I've already learned a form does it matter which one?

No, not at all. While some style of Tai chi chuan do some things differently they all share the same general principles.

If I already know a form why should I do this class?

Learning the movements of a tai chi chuan form is a good beginning bu the most benefits are acheived through the highest level practice. Learning the inside components is the gateway to higher levels of practice.
