Through the ages, tai chi has morphed through many different styles. The Yang style, or “long form” that I practice and teach, is a succession of 108 slow movements and postures, broken into three sections, which flow together into one set.
The practice of tai chi, as with any art, is built on intention and repetition. As we progress through the set, we consistently revert back to the beginning postures to develop muscle memory of each movement. Students develop the benefits of stability, balance, and a deep body awareness. With tai chi, you learn to “stand like mountain, move like water.”
I’ve been a tai chi practitioner for 38 years, an instructor for twenty. I also taught high school for thirty years, so I understand the challenge of teaching, and the cultivation of practice and perseverance. Tai chi is a life-long training that requires great patience and perseverance, whether you are learning or teaching it. I feel blessed to be doing both.
