How to Improve Our Tai Chi?

Carolines klasse for å oppdage dybden 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 fysisk nivå:
- Transformasjonen fra stivhet til fleksibilitet; fra kondisjonering til fitness
- Transformasjonen fra fattigere helse til bedre helse
– the transformation from disconnected body movements to coordinated, fluid, full body movements
På mentalt nivå:
- Transformasjonen fra tankeløs bevegelse til intensjon som styrer bevegelsene.
– the transformation from a noisy, cluttered mind to a quiet, calm, still, focused mind.
På det åndelige nivået:
– 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 å puste - en avslappet, dyp abdominal pust.
- Fokus på sinnet - bruk av intensjon om å lede bevegelsene.
– Focus on being present in our bodies – to feel the movements from the inside out,
Følg bevegelsene med kroppene våre (ikke bare bevissthet om dem med vårt sinn)
– Awareness of our orientation in space as we move. Feeling the proper alignment in
kroppen under hver bevegelse.
- Bevisst klar over hælen som rører ned, vektløs først, da
Overføring av energi og vekt når vi fullfører bevegelsen.
- Bemerker avslappingen av hver muskel i kroppen og ekspansjonen og løsningen
av leddene mens vi beveger oss.
- Utvikle tråden som forbinder hver bevegelse til neste.
- Blir væske under øvelse av skjemaet.
- Følelse av energi beveger seg i kroppen med hver bevegelse.
– Following the energy of the movements. Allowing the energy to move us, or carry
oss inn i neste bevegelse.
- Føler seg jordet.
- Følelse av forbindelse med jord og himmel.
- Føler den dype forbindelsen vi har med naturen og virkelig føler 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. Finn en lærer du resonerer med og trener med ham 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. Se utover den eksterne skjemaet.
5. Develop the inner qualities of stillness, awareness, non judgment, acceptance and courage.
6. Gjør abdominal pust ditt normale pustemønster.
7. Les, studere, overveie og følge Tai Chi-prinsippene.
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. Og, selvfølgelig, viktigst, ha det gøy.
