Things are already getting smoother! I have already seen a shift: everybody was more confident, balance is improving and the awareness of body posture increased! By the end of the course all of you will be able to perform “eight style” by yourself!
Reminder of what we practiced
We warmed up and stretched as in the first lesson: Qi Qong and Tenzan Lenko.
Then we practiced basic and the lateral walk. We focused also on upper body’s moves in “clouds hands”, and then combined them with the lower body moves. “Cloud hands” is a complex set of moves and requires a lot of practice; it gives an incredible piece of mind once you’ll be able to perform it smoothly.
“Brush knee” and its martial application will be examined during the next lesson.
We’ll keep on practicing “eight style”.
If we breath correctly during practice will expel the old and take in the new. This action brings to longevity.
Practice as much as you can!
Thank you again to all of you for coming today! We worked hard!
Here’s a reminder of what we practiced this morning:
– Preliminary QiGong’s stretching and warming up,
– Tai chi walking: how to step forward and laterally, lower limbs’ moves,
– “Holding the Ball”: upper body’s moves,
– “Parting the Wild Horse’s Mane”: combining lower and upper body’s moves into this basic stance. The martial application of this stance has been examined,
– “Eight Style”: we performed it from the beginning to the end and we’ll keep on practicing it.
We’ll review everything we practiced today and I’ll introduce “Brush Knee” stance.
I look forward to practicing with you next week and …remember:
prepare yourself mentally, relax and cleanse your mind from all thoughts. Your internal energy will flow!
To all my students,
I’m looking forward seeing you this Friday for our first Thai Chi class.
I’m sure we will all gain from each other embarking on this trip together!
