Tai Chi Tips #1 - How to Relax in Tai Chi

The intent to learn something, is the first factor that makes me get tensed. Second is whether I am doing in the right way...
Thirdly, doing exercises like weight lifting and bars make the muscles a bit tense, which reflects in the movements of tai-chi.
since I meditate, I am able to see the flow of graceful movements because of meditation. Otherwise it is with big effort.
This video is superb. Thanks.

Relaxation in Tai Chi

I first learned about relaxation in Tai Chi by standing in a pool of water that was about chest high. With my hands by my sides, I could use intent to float my arms upward using natural flotation. Then by dropping my elbows, the flotation lessens allowing the arms to drop down to the side again. Extending this experience when standing alone helped immensely.

Man you are sooo right thats exactly what I have been going through! But my instinct has told me that to begin I must empty myself! I found FOR my self that I must find a place of Zen for my self to center my spirit and I'm battling with my mind and body, I will succeed thank you very much for reinforcing this for me and my fellow scholars.:)) Abel

Thank you for your work

I am so delighted to have Bruce doing what he does. I have been studying chi-gong for years and tai chi more recently. I feel I have been given a leg up while being inspired to focus in on practice in a new and better way, humbly and calmly like never before. Thank you Bruce. I hope one day to meet you and get some training in person from you.

In November 2009 I was lucky to attend The Chi Rev Workout workshop in Basel Switzerland with Bruce. There I learned D&T movement 1, 4 and 5 and began practicing on a regular basis.

Since then - the really great thing is - that I do not suffer from springtime pollen allergies anymore. This is my 3rd year allergy free.

Recently I completed the online D&T course and I am now able to perform the full set of seven movements with ease.
