We haven't been able to have our regular Tai Chi classes in person due to the covid-19 pandemic. To aid my students as well as others, I've been putting together a series of instructional videos that are broken out in roughly the same segements that we teach in the class. Tai Chi is notoriously difficult to learn period, but from videos even more so. My hope with these videos is that you start to appreciate some of the deeper aspects that are happening within the moves.

Generally speaking you would take each segment and practice just that segment over and over for a week or two before moving on to the next section. Part of this is building strength and coordination and some is building muscle memory. The more you do the form, the less you have to think about doing the form and then, accordingly, the more you are likely to feel. The more you practice a section over and over, the more you are likely to make it smooth and fluid. It is better to think of learning tai chi being akin to learning a musical instrument with no musical background - you have to learn the musical notation, the general notes on the instrument, the hand-eye coordination, build up dexterity and timing, etc. There is quite a bit happening in each move and these snippets are in no way going to cover that, but they should help you understand where the movements should be originating from and how that power should mobilize your body.

I started these early May 2020 and will continue to update this page until this form is done. Information about our Qigong and Tai Chi classes in Chattanooga can be found here, the full list of videos on our facebook page can be found here, and these and many more are available on our youtube page.
