Maximize Your Skillset
Here at Northwest Tai Chi the class is divided into three distinct phases. We start with Chi Kung which includes a static and moving set. Chi Kung develops aspects of stillness and fundamental body mechanics. Next and possibly the most recognisable part of Tai Chi practice is the Tai Chi form. This is a set of slow continuous flowing integrated movements. Form practice increases awareness of balance co-ordination and rhythm. The third part consists of two person exercises. Two person work has many and varied exercises. These type of exercises are often overlooked often regarded as simply developing martial practice, yet they are fundamental to your overall development of Tai Chi. Two person exercises improve and enhance co-ordination, resillience, whole body power, stability of mind-body and much more.
