Tai Chi: The Empowering Workout
The beauty and the power of Tai Chi Chuan is created in the way that one moves. In essence, the mastery of one move is far superior to the learning of a hundred moves. The purpose of this program is not to teach a series of complicated postures, but to simplify and clarify the physical, energetic and mental dynamics that empower Tai Chi. The first section explores the structural mechanics that are universal to all Tai Chi styles. Section two loosens and lubricates all the joints of the body. Section three integrates the structural mechanics into ten Tai Chi postures. The final section combines mind intent and inner body skill to maximize the strength, energy, and circulation of power flowing throughout the body. This program combines breathtaking nature footage gleaned from Miramar's award winning collection with the exercises.
