This is a perfect way to get started on your journey to wellness. If you are interested in learning Tai Chi but not sure where to start, I would highly recommend coming to this workshop.
This workshop was designed to introduce to the Colorado Springs community the beautiful and healing art of Tai Chi. Harvard Medical School recently wrote a book,  The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi on the many benefits of Tai Chi. We have been witnesses to the many testimonials from students about how Tai Chi has helped them. Beginner to Intermediate Level Students learn the body mechanics of the structured Yang Cheng Fu Large Frame Form “also known as the 108? of Yang Style Tai Chi.
By the end of this workshop you will have — everything you need to join a Beginner’s class with confidence.
Tai chi, which originated in China as a martial (self defense) art, is now usually referred to in terms of a mind-body practice in complementary and alternative medicine.
Scientific research is under way to learn more about how tai chi may work, its possible effects on health, and chronic diseases and conditions for which it may be helpful.
Tai chi incorporates the Chinese concepts of yin and yangThe concept of two opposing yet complementary forces described in traditional Chinese medicine. In general, studies of tai chi have been small, or they have had design limitations that may limit their conclusions.
As with any exercise regimen, if you overdo practice, you may have sore muscles or sprains.
Tai chi instructors often recommend that you do not practice tai chi right after a meal, or when you are very tired, or if you have an active infection. If you are pregnant, or if you have a hernia, joint problems, back pain, fractures, or severe osteoporosis, your health care provider may advise you to modify or avoid certain postures in tai chi. Once we learn how to do the left version, the 2nd video teaches us how to apply our knowledge to perform the RIGHT version, then repeat again to the LEFT. Follow along with Ian as he slowly and effortlessly teaches us the fifth posture in the 24 form, Strum Lute (or Play Guitar). How did you do?  Feel like you are ready to practice on your own?  Try this lesson #7 Strum Lute several times throughout the day today then check back tomorrow for the next posture.  Before you know it you will be performing the Tai Chi 24 form with ease and comfort. Following along with Ian Sinclair’s video series Tai Chi for Beginners 24 Form, today we get to lesson #8 where we learn the 6th posture, Step Back To Repulse Monkey, Left.

Yesterday we started learning the 4 parts of posture 7 in the 24 form, called Grasp Bird By the Tail. We have taken the better part of this week just breaking down this one posture, Grasp Bird By the Tail, into 4 parts  and learning them individually.  Actually there are 3 parts to the form, since the 4th is actually the 8th posture which is repeating on the opposite side. Thank you Ian Sinclair for making this series available to those of us who are learning this form online. Are you ready to learn the next posture in the 24 form?  This video features posture 9 in the Tai Chi for Beginners 24 form series; the Single Whip posture.   Hang in there, you are now over halfway there! Remember too that as a new learner, we are not expect to learn this and be proficient at it right away. Next, is lesson 20 where we learn Rooster Stands On The Left Leg. This is the move that transitions between Snake Creaps Low to the left then right. We are winding down now with the basic 24 form, which is the starter for everyone in Tai Chi. If you enjoyed this series, please consider LIKING and sharing this page with your friends.  We also enjoy your comments and feedback below. Tai Chi Move: The Single WhipEach tai chi form can be broken down into a series of individual movements. This next section provides a general overview of tai chi and suggests sources for additional information.
A popular legend credits its origins to Chang San-Feng, a Taoist monk, who developed a set of 13 exercises that imitate the movements of animals.
Yin represents cold, slow, or passive aspects of the person, while yang represents hot, excited, or active aspects.
In the Chinese community, people commonly practice tai chi in nearby parks—often in early morning before going to work.
Several studies have focused on the elderly, including tai chi’s potential for preventing falls and improving cardiovascular fitness and overall well-being. The cumulative evidence suggests that additional research is warranted and needed before tai chi can be widely recommended as an effective therapy.
As mentioned yesterday, there are actually several names for it but this is the one I am using because it’s most descriptive and frankly, as a beginner, it helps me remember the movement. I especially appreciate your sense of humor – folks, be sure to watch this all the way to the end and you will see what I mean. Like the lesson with kick to right, but as he mentions the preceeding and following moves are different.

Ian emphasizes to do what you can and over time with practice you will be able to drop lower.  In fact, start by not dropping very low until you have built up strength and flexibility. The movement is easier than those we have been doing, this being primarily an upper body movement. This research provides fascinating insight into the underlying physiological mechanisms that explain how Tai Chi actually works. Complementary medicine is used together with conventional  and alternative medicine in place of conventional medicine.
He also emphasized meditationA conscious mental process using certain techniques—such as focusing attention or maintaining a specific posture—to suspend the stream of thoughts and relax the body and mind.
A major theory is that health is achieved through balancing yin and yang and disease is caused by an imbalance leading to a blockage in the flow of qi.
There are many different styles, but all involve slow, relaxed, graceful movements, each flowing into the next. A 2007 NCCAM-funded study on the immune response to varicella-zoster virus (the virus that causes shingles) suggested that tai chi may enhance the immune system and improve overall well-being in older adults.
I found what I was doing wrong (and this video helped me correct) is, I was trying to bring-feet-together-and-step-out all in one movement, with each rotation from right to left – that is wrong. Tai chi has also been studied for improving functional capacity in breast cancer patients and quality of life in people with HIV infection.
Studies have also looked at tai chi’s possible benefits for a variety of other conditions, including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoarthritis. Practicing tai chi is said to support a healthy balance of yin and yang, thereby aiding the flow of qi. Individuals practicing tai chi must also concentrate, putting aside distracting thoughts; and they must breathe in a deep and relaxed, but focused manner. In 2008, a review of published research, also funded by NCCAM, found that tai chi reduced participants’ blood pressure in 22 (of 26) studies.
