About Tai Chi

Tai Chi falls under the category of Art, Movement and Meditation. In order to learn something new one needs to be re-acquainted with the Art of Practice. The amazing thing about Tai Chi movement is that even one move has the ability to express the essence of Tai Chi. The path of Tai Chi is not one that could be described as easy. Most of the movements are easy in terms of being physically possible for most able- bodied people. But to practice by oneself without following is not that easy. So to begin we need to take on very small chunks of movement information. We then need to return to the idea of Practice. A brilliant book all about the essence of Practice has been written by Seth Godin called “The Practice”. In essence practice is all about making mistakes. If we start by allowing ourselves to emmerse in the Art of Practice then every minute can be enjoyed. Connection to breathing can also bring our focused attention to what we are doing in the immediate moment. This connection of attention and movement can quickly shift our consciousness into a higher state. This higher state exists in a plane of deep peace and relaxation. The biggest difference Tai Chi has to offer versus Yoga, dancing, fast impact martial arts, and active sports is the movements are done slowly with focus and there is no limit to how much you step around, turn and move. There are no stationary, holding movements in a Tai Chi routine, The movement is continuous, focused flow.
