Part 3 of the Step-by-Step guide to our modified Yang-style Tai Chi Short Form, covering Golden Cockerel, Four Directions, Spins and Kicks....
The Tai Chi form – Yang style: a long sequence of slow movements with controlled breathing, derived from ancient Chinese martial art practice.
This form is based on the classic Yang style of Cheng Man Ch’ing, but has been modified by one of his students, Dr Sam Lee. It emphasises the therapeutic, healing aspects of the form and makes it more accessible to people of all abilities.
This 30-minute class challenges and builds co-ordination, balance, strength and control.
