Essential Practising Principles for Beginners

These simple, easy to understand principles will assist you to improve your Tai Chi and explore the deeper meaning of the art.

  1. Good control of movements. Make your movements slow, continuous, and even (not jerky and keep the same speed throughout).
  2. Cultivate your inner force (Qi) by imagining that the air around you is dense, and you have to move against a gentle resistance.
  3. Be aware of your weight transference.
  4. Maintain an upright posture without tension for proper body alignment,
  5. Loosen the joints. Gently stretch all your joints from within.
  6. Focus on your movement.
