The program includes training in alignment, grounding and core movement presented in a sequence that progresses from simple to complex moves. It also provides perspectives on the practical wisdom of this ancient exercise and its applications for daily life. Whether you are learning it for the first time, or reviewing in detail, this program can help you develop and maintain a solid foundation for your tai chi practice. Growing numbers of tai chi instructors are discovering that this program enhances learning for both introductory and advanced level students. Heath care professionals and fitness instructors are also integrating it into a number of their programs. First, Tai Chi Fundamentals teaches you how to move correctly when you practice tai chi. The Basic Moves, also called Movement Patterns, provide training in the natural, efficient and safe body movement of tai chi. They also provide practice in coordinating breathing with movement and staying relaxed while in motion. Each movement integrates the skills from the preceding movement and progresses in difficulty. The program then offers step-by-step instruction in the simplified Fundamentals Form. The movements in the Form progress from simple to more complex and correspond to the Basic Moves.
