Taichi Basics

65 Lessons

The purpose of Taichi Basics is to make your body strong and healthy, to establish a solid foundation with the taichi basic exercises, and to prepare you for your next step which is learning the taichi solo form.

Taichi Form

20 Lessons

This course emphasizes the careful memorization of Part 1 of the traditional Chen style solo routine, Laojia Yilu (Old Frame First Routine), in the lineage of Grandmaster Wang Xi'an. This solo routine forms the basis for Chen style taichi and is the source of all modern taichi styles (Yang, Wu...)

Wuji Standing Method

"The most valuable exercise you will ever learn!"

Wuji Standing Method can be traced back to ancient times as a form of core training for martial arts. This simple standing practice unleashes the power of your mind to heal chronic pain and illness, dramatically improve your health & energy levels, reverse the effects of aging, and cultivate inner calm & stillness.

Try these taichi movements

3 most valuable basic exercises

1. The Hip Rotation is the most important of the Daily Dozen Loosening Up series. Taking 2 minutes a day to perform this one simple exercise will keep your hip joints freely moveable, which will have a major effect on the health and strength of your lower back and knees. It will also prevent you from one day needing a hip replacement surgery, as it keeps the hip joint space free and open.

2. The Lower Body Silk Reeling forms the foundation for all taichi movements. It teaches you how to coordinate your lower body and makes it very powerful and flexible. From that you will be able to add the upper body movements much more easily. When you understand and can perform the Lower body Silk Reeling it will help immensely when you start learning the solo form.

3. How to Stretch Your Back is taichi's method to gain and maintain youthful flexibility of your entire spine, and also realigns spinal vertebrae that may be slightly out of position, causing back pain from nerve impingement. The BEST EXERCISE for your back!
