Summary and Info
Tai Chi is a form of "moving meditation" for the body, mind and spirit. This manual introduces the short yang form in a structured learning programme. It is divided into eight lessons with warm-up exercises; then the book demonstrates the movements necessary to perform the eight-minute "dance". Each stance is accompanied by foot diagrams which indicate the required position, orientation and weight distribution. The health benefits of Tai Chi are discussed in part two of the book. This section also introduces exercises that can be done with a partner.
