Tai Chi and You

Classes postponed
James has been taken ill and will not be running any classes for a while.
In the meantime, he says to try to practice at home whenever the spirit moves you. You can use the James Short Form video on youtube to help you learn and reinforce the form. There are also several other energising, healthful and enjoyable sets of exercises to use which are here on the enfieldtaichi website in the Video Links section.

James is also recommending his friend Michael Richards who is currently running online classes at www.hertstaichi.com which include the traditional foundation form, golden flower form, chi kung, shibashi and shaking and breathing.

For people who fall in love with Tai Chi, it can provide a lifetime of interesting experiences, friendships, healing exercises, energy creating exercises, playful discoveries and games using your own body and also practising with a partner.

You don’t have to do Tai Chi for a long time to enjoy the benefits of this relaxing, energising and meditative exercise. Just a one hour session will give you an experience of the effects of Tai Chi. The feeling is like waking up from a great night’s sleep or from a warm shower or hot bath – deeply relaxed and feeling at home and alive in your own body.

In Tai Chi your arms do not move except as part of your body. If they act independently, the exercise is worthless. Quotation by Cheng Man Ching.
