It’s been quite an odyssey, this taiji journey. From sea to sea, three continents so far, seven countries, an island, a mountain, sunrise to sunset, under the moonlight, morning, noon and night, this taiji form is some vehicle!
The slow-moving, 108 move, empty-hand, solo form is a vehicle for the study of taiji principles that are put into play in all aspects of the taiji curriculum and our lives. Alignment, breath, conscious movement, energy circulation, responsiveness and assertion are just some of the things the form helps me practice.
For something so slow, it sure can take one far!
