Learn to Copy, Relax and observe your own body


So: Tai Chi movement is how the human body moves when we are relaxed and move from the centre.

We could find this on our own – but mostly we benefit from the guidance of a knowledgeable “other”. My patient teacher, Karel Koskuba, shared with me that I should not seek to explain things to my students – explanations are always wrong and confusing – students must learn to copy the teacher and observe their own bodies. A bit like a guide taking you on a trip or following a satnav.

So there you have it- copy and observe.

Oh and practice – a lot – so you can observe some more and integrate the changes.
