30-minute online interactive Tai Chi classes focussing on the 8-Step Yang-Style Form and the 12-Step Sun-Style Form.
The 8-Step form is a compact Yang-style form that uses key steps from the traditional, longer Yang forms and the 24-Step Form. All the movements are repeated on both left and right sides of the body and the sequence requires only a small space in which to practice.
The 12-Step Sun-style form is compact too and involves few turns so it works well in the internet format. Sun style Tai Chi has a different ‘feel’, with nimble steps and a ‘close’ body shape. Some of the postures are recognisable from Yang forms and even have the same names but are performed differently – in Sun style.
