Tai Chi - (FREE Video Lesson)








15-1a: Breathe in deeply and lift your palms as if circling them up in front of you over a large three-foot ball, shifting weight toward the left foot.


[Excerpt from The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & Qigong]









ILLUSTRATED INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOVEMENT #1 [How do illustrations work?]

Tai Chi - (Movement 1a Illustration)




15-1b: As the palms pull back over the sphere, ending up in front of your chest as though you were going to push something away, the weight shifts back to the right foot, sinking the Qi, or filling the right foot, as palms drop to sides of hips.

[Excerpt from The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & Qigong]

Tai Chi - (Lesson 1b Illustration)

15-1c: From palms down position, palms pull out and behind a bit to rotate out the shoulders. As empty left foot comes out in front, place left heel lightly on the ground. Continue circling arms around in front of body as if hugging a large tree, and left heel touches just as your palms meet. The left palm is lateral as in the sketch, while right palm is vertical. Although the movement is called Strike Palm, the palms don't actually strike; pretend there is a soft energy sphere the size of a honeydew melon between your relaxed, rounded hands.

Spread Wings on Lotus - a

This motion fully rotates the shoulder joints, which can begin to loosen some of the daily stress we tend to accumulate there. This movement challenges and improves your ability to balance, as it carries you through a transitional move toward the next movement.

 Regarding the Movement illustrated instructions below:      
Find many more styles in DVDs, books, classes, or links

The movement sketches and their accompanying text in this chapter include…

[lb] Directional arrows. Arrows show how your limbs or body move from the previous “ghost image” position into the current position. Taking all the guesswork out of how you get from one pose to another.

[lb] Markers. "L" and "R" marked on the figures so you can see at a glance whether the "left" side or "right" side of the body is depicted.

[lb] Shading. The leg the weight is on, or the filled leg, will be shaded to a darkness level reflecting just how much weight is shifted on to it. When both legs are shaded, weight is evenly distributed.

[lb] Posture line. A line indicating your vertical axis or postural alignment centered over the dan tien.

[lb] Emphasis. Occasional italicized text explains what sensations and internal awareness, releases, and benefits you may be experiencing within as you go through the motions.

[lb] "Ghost" images. Most of the sketches will have a ghost image indicating what the previous posture was, helping you see transitions.
