I'm sorry but you can't learn tai chi on video

Posted on January 31, 2021 at 12:06 PM
In these strange times I am now convinced more than ever that you just cannot learn tai chi on-line. The really worrying thing is the amount of teacher training courses which offer certificates for completing these on-line courses. People just cannot begin to feel the strength and power behind these movements and i'm afraid physical contact is needed to ensure that postures are correct. I think this is going to 'Water down' tai chi and chi kung either further than it is already. I even stopped teaching my normal tai chi classes on zoom because it was just impossible to give corrections - 5 Element Chi Kung is not quite so difficult and in any case I kept the classes to those who were already training with me - I did accept a few 'newbies' but even so it was hard to actually see if their postures were correct - were they coordinating movement with breath? I had to take their word for it! So, I for one will be so happy when we can return to normal and reopen the studio and enjoy teaching classes and private lessons once again.
