This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Drawn from the author’s nearly two decades of learning and teaching the richly rewarding, energetic dynamics of internal martial arts, Practicing Tai Chi offers beginner and intermediate practitioners perspectives on what tai chi is, why do it, how to do it, and ways to integrate it into daily life. Learners who have already begun tai chi and have some knowledge of its basics will get the most out of this companion to practice.
Concepts and techniques for practicing touch on activities to focus your attention on common tai chi movements, such as loosening, stretching, energy cultivation, single basic moves, meditation, and form. Practicing Tai Chi is about how to think about your practice as much as learn a few techniques for doing movements associated with tai chi and qigong.
