T'Ai Chi Form : 37 Steps to Happiness
Explaining that to obtain real benefit from the movements of T'ai Chi, the student needs to tune into internal chi, the energy that flows through our bodies, "T'ai Chi Form" stands out from the many T'ai Chi books and courses which concentrate exclusively on the martial arts and fitness aspects. The author's innovative method concentrates on fluidity of movement, overcoming the initial embarrassment many beginners feel and helping the most awkward student achieve a state of graceful balance. As the physical body flows more easily, Choy demonstrates, it is able to tune in to its own internal chi, and to the positive chi energy in the world around. In addition to the 37 movements of the traditional T'ai Chi form, the book contains a section of exercises to be done with a partner and some specially devised movements to be performed in water. The step-by-step color photography and accessible writing style make this a must for beginners, while the greater insights and unique new sequences will also appeal to the more experienced student or teacher.
