Essential Points to Remember when Practicing Tai Chi

  • Suspend from above - the energy at the top of your head should be light and sensitive.
  • Sink your chest and round your back.
  • Sink and Relax your waist - the root is in the feet, energy rises up the legs, is controlled by the waist and expressed in the hands and fingers.
  • Distinguish between full and empty - where does your weight rest?
  • Sink your shoulders and drop your elbows.
  • Use your mind, not strength - we must relax completely to allow our chi to flow unobstructed - then our movements will be nimble, circular and spontaneous.
  • Use your entire body - link body movements together from the ground up, like a series of gears the upper and lower parts folloow one another.
  • Seek continuity without interruption like a great river.
  • Seek stillness in movement and movement in stillness - the slower the better, "remain unmoving until the right action arises by itself."
  • Concentrate your line of vision.
