I'm with you on this journey. Remember that.
I've been teaching Tai Chi and languages since the early 1990's in both the United Kingdom and in Spain. I've also written numerous books on Tai Chi, recorded videos and many podcasts (iTunes - still have some available). Over these years I learnt that Tai Chi is really about communication. If you can communicate the lessons in an interesting and challenging way - using body, speech, gestures and the power of images and music - then the art is open to everyone to learn.
My aim therefore is to offer the elements of Tai Chi in separate easy-to-learn courses that everyone can grasp and practice immediately. For those preferring not to break things apart there is the COMPLETE COURSE that covers art and history, postures and breath as well as applications too.
If anyone can learn Tai Chi, then I believe that anyone can pass on those skills to others. Thus, over time, our efforts become immortalised. (You may have noticed that this theme occurs regularly in the COMPLETE TAI CHI COURSE). But there is something else that happens in Tai Chi that contributes to longevity, and that is the slowing down of time. We begin to notice the smaller things in life, the things that others step over, step around or don't even see at all. And in so doing, our senses awaken.
This is the experience I want to share with you on this adventure. An exploration of our senses and of time. An exploration into the rich history, practice and philosophy of Tai Chi. .
