Tai Chi 4 You: Home Practice:
This page is meant as a very basic support and coaching guide to inspire you to practice at home, in your garden..out in the fresh air. Safe area, good location, Only weather pattern to avoid training in, is if it is very windy! Otherwise just keep yourself well wrapped up , scarf to ensure back of head and neck are warm, usual comfortable training cloths. Should you get hot and sweaty, then keep well covered to avoid loosing chi and "catching a cold" etc. Out in the fresh air is always the best.
One of my main passions as Tai Chi coach is to inspire students to practice at home. The terrible events unfolding resulting from the Corona virus out break brings everyone's attention to the importance of ones practice of Tai Chi and Qigong.
At all last weeks lessons before the Netherlands land wide shut I pointed out that if ever there was a time to get your act together and practice at home on a daily basis it is now! SO GET STARTED NOW! YES RIGHT NOW using this page and other information on this website to inspire you to take a holistic practice schedule to help you in many ways improve your immune system, prevention, protecting yourself, friends, other family members and help you make a speedy recovery, restoring your health should you be suffering from the Corona virus.
Decide Direct and Do:
"We make our habits and our habits make us!" is a old and very true saying. So let's go for it! Rome of course is not built in one day, yet get started right now were you are.

This music you can enjoy to practice your Qigong or Tai Chi too. It has a lovely soft sounding bell every three minutes which you can gently shift from one posture of qigong to another and build up your chi inner stamina and power. Try 3-5 minutes at first and build up to enjoying standing like a tree for as long as it feel good to do so. You are building up your mind and well as practice to relax. Powerful find your feet mindfulness mediation.simply breathing in and out. Happy Chi From Tony.

I am pleased to be able to present you this you tube clip by Kevin Bryant It is a very simplified version of the form which gives a student a nice reminder of the flow order. Beginners find the flow order of the postures a nice mindful challenge in their first several months. The support this videos front and back view will hopefully achieve that aim to follow the form as you remember the teachings you have received to date.
