Tai Chi learning 'helps'

 When Tai Chi is performed well, it appears effortless and is beautiful to watch but like most things worth pursuing, it takes time. Curiosity, observation, and tenacity served the first outsider to learn Tai Chi well, because he did so by observing through gaps in a fence, practicing at home until he could present himself a disciplined student to his teacher - so the legend goes anyway! The point is, these can still help make Tai Chi yours. Bill has found these additional factors true when it comes to teaching and learning Tai Chi:


Look for a teacher, or sifu, who demonstrates expertise in humility so you feel safe to learn as Tai Chi often requires this sort of freedom to grow in new ways. A good teacher should share what they know and encourage you to explore your study of appealing topics.


A student is responsible for showing up with an attitude of taking charge of their learning, genuinely participating in class and departing knowing they will only keep what they regularly practice. Good students appreciate the opportunity come early or stay late to seek help on the postures they've been working on at home, with the video, for evaluation, and those who do usually receive the guidance they desire...just sayin ')


  To help overcome learning curves, Bill developed a classroom supplemental training video and has posted other videos viewable at the link to  The Tai Chi Therapy YouTube channel.  Bill's students say he's a patient and caring personality with a passion for teaching Tai Chi. They say his word pictures keep learning light and make the complex less so! For those seeking it, Bill transparently shares events from his life to help those seeking Tai Chi as a healthy way to age. 


From all of us at Tai Chi Therapy, we hope you'll come and experience a class...the first one is free!
