Tai Chi for Everyone

'Tai Chi for Everyone' is ideal for beginners as an introduction to the benefits of Tai Chi. There are 8 basic movements. It has been structured to enable people of all ages and physical capacities to enjoy Tai Chi. There are 2 separate versions: Standing and Seated. Simply select the version that is appropriate to you.

Version One is the Standing Form. It is ideal for a beginner. It is easy to learn, remember and practice. The 8 fundamental movements are taught in a standing position so there are no space limitations, making it suitable for people who do not have access to large, open areas. While the form is fairly short, you can make it longer by repeating individual movements or of the complete set.

Version Two is seated. This Sitting Form is suitable for those people who have limited mobility, are confined to a wheelchair or have been advised not to stand for extended periods of time. Even though you are seated, many benefits will be gained from Tai Chi for health and well-being.

These are episodes of Move It Or Lose It broadcast on Channel 31 in 2019.
