How to Improve Our Tai Chi?

Carolines klass för att upptäcka djupet av Sun Style Tai Chi i Monterey juni 2004How to improve our Tai Chi? That’s why we all came to Dr. Lam’s workshop in Asilomar, that DESIRE to improve our Tai Chi. Having good instruction is essential to Tai Chi development, however, the biggest ingredient in improvement is YOU and your practice. Practicing with precision, with patience, with perseverance, and with passion, having made Tai Chi a priority in your life is a good way to begin improving our Tai Chi.

Tai Chi is a journey inward. It is your journey and yours alone. When I think about Tai Chi, it feels like a process of transformation.
På den fysiska nivån:
- omvandlingen från styvhet till flexibilitet från avkolning till fitness
- Förvandlingen från fattigare hälsa till bättre hälsa
– the transformation from disconnected body movements to coordinated, fluid, full body movements
På mental nivå:
- Förvandlingen från en tanklös rörelse till avsikt att styra rörelserna.
– the transformation from a noisy, cluttered mind to a quiet, calm, still, focused mind.
På andlig nivå:
– the transformation from an ego/judgment based reality to a reality of clarity, awareness and compassion.
– the transformation from unconscious movement to being PRESENT in the body, fully aware of how it feels when we move.

So how do we improve our Tai Chi? What do we bring to our daily practice that facilitates this transformation? Using the guidance of teachers on how to perform the physical movements, the external part of Tai Chi, we must bring a focus on the Internal.
Focus is a very important word in improving our Tai Chi. We must bring our focus inward. Our internal development comes after we learn the shape and sequence of movements and feel very familiar and comfortable with the form we are learning.
- Fokus på andning - en avslappnad, djup andning i buken.
- Fokusera på sinnet - med avsikt att styra rörelserna.
– Focus on being present in our bodies – to feel the movements from the inside out,
känna rörelserna med våra kroppar (inte bara medvetenhet om dem med vårt sinne)
– Awareness of our orientation in space as we move. Feeling the proper alignment in
kroppen under varje rörelse.
- Medvetet medveten om hälen som rinner ner, viktlös först, då
överföring av energi och vikt när vi fullbordar rörelsen.
- Notera avslappningen av varje muskel i kroppen och expansionen och lossningen
av leder som vi flyttar.
- Utveckla tråden som förbinder varje rörelse till nästa.
- Blir vätska under träning av formen.
- Känsla av energi rör sig i kroppen med varje rörelse.
– Following the energy of the movements. Allowing the energy to move us, or carry
oss in i nästa rörelse.
- Känsla jordad.
- Känsla samband med jorden och himlen.
- Känna den djupa anslutningen vi har med naturen och känner verkligen den enhet.

Under our teacher’s guidance, we teach ourselves Tai Chi. We follow and watch this process of transformation. Sometimes we even become impatient because the process takes so long and takes on a life of its own.

Our inward journey takes us to deeper and deeper levels of awareness of how our body moves, how our energy feels. Like peeling off the layers of the onion, this transformation takes us to never ending new levels of living deeper in our bodies, becoming more aware and present.

Developing the internal is your responsibility. It is the gift you are giving yourself through the study of Tai Chi. No one can do it for you. A teacher can show you the movements and provide feedback on your process of learning. A teacher can give you technical corrections, guidance on the internal components of Tai Chi and see the results of your practice, but you are the one who must have the desire to pursue the internal. You are the one who must have the desire to improve your Tai Chi.

So, how can we improve our Tai Chi?
1. Hitta en lärare som du resonerar med och tränar med honom eller henne.
2. Teach Tai Chi to other people. I have learned so much more about Tai Chi during the time I spend contemplating how to explain it, how to facilitate anotherXCHARXs progress, how to coach and how to inspire a class. Teaching is a fast track for our own progress.
3. Practice, practice, practice with patience, perseverance, passion and precision having identified Tai Chi as a priority in your life. And practice with beginnerXCHARXs mind. When we think we know it, there is no room for new awareness.
4. Titta bortom den externa formen.
5. Develop the inner qualities of stillness, awareness, non judgment, acceptance and courage.
6. Gör andning i munnen ditt normala andningsmönster.
7. Läs, studera, överväga och följa Tai Chi-principerna.
8. Identify your Tai Chi goals, because XCHARXenergy follows intentionXCHARX When your goals are specific, you are more likely to achieve them than when they are vague or unclear. Taking the time to write down how you want to improve your Tai Chi helps to clarify goals and make them specific.
9. Och, naturligtvis, viktigast av allt, ha kul.
