Tai Chi for Beginners
And Tai Chi Circling Hands
I am a big believer in having ‘good starts’ because when you learn properly the first time, then you don’t have to unlearn any bad habits later. Mastery in any field has to be built on a solid foundation. This program will help you deepen your “root” and develop strong tai chi fundamentals.
For the first time I am offering Tai Chi Circling Hands, a program I developed after learning hundreds tai chi and qigong forms and teaching tens of thousands of students. I have found that this one program can help anyone learn tai chi. It teaches you how to break down tai chi movemnets into three primary circles. I believe it is very useful both as a stand alone exercise and as a way to dramatically increase the speed of which you can learn and improve your tai chi. As I have said many times, tai chi has transformed my life and my health many times. It is one of the world’s greatest art forms and treasures.
I believe it to be the uber-exercise on the planet and one that can help so many people in the future. May you have fun learning tai chi and may it benefit you greatly!
All the best,
