We are normally in the Turners Hill "Ark" Centre on Tuesday evenings 7.30 - 8.45 pm
these are our guiding tips while we're virally suspended!:
1. to practice your Chi Kung breathing exercises whenever getting vexed
(but to be sure it's your own private fresh airspace!)
2. to "wait for your weight to penetrate"
(you'll stay more focused and your Tai Chi form will come alive if you do)
4. To allow extension of your "Crane breathing" sessions into mindful meditation
when you do you'll glimpse, at least, the serenity of isolation and over time that will translate into moving meditation in the Tai Chi form and elsewhere
5. When a walk in the fresh air isn't enough, Taoist self massage will "even you out"
(just don't be limp about it!)
6. Paradoxical wit can keep you well balanced
so don't be afraid to see the humorous side of your own errors as you practice your form
- that's what has always equipped Tai Chi warriors to lighten dark events, observing what's peculiarly funny about them
7. What you think will happen
(as any decent quantum physicist will tell you)
- so it's best to separate fears from hopes and intentions. Use your Tai Chi for practice.
8. Make the most of your Kong Jing
by using it to practice "allowing"
- your sensory and intuitive powers will thereby harmonise into the "grand ultimate" quantum effect which enhances true Tai Chi
9. Vitality depends on variety
which is the spice of life and the secret of youthful vigour
so it pays to intelligently vary what you eat, drink and do (or don't do) in response to needs and opportunities within the changes you encounter
- in yourself, in your Tai Chi and in all around you.
Loose fitting clothing and light trainers or plimsoles are fine for starting Tai Chi
(but preferably not thick black soles that may mark the sports hall floor)
