This has been an excellent time to explore Tai Chi on a personal basis – to spend time on individual practice looking deeper into the exercises and the form, so I am delighted that many people have been following the exercises and the form on my Alternative Health Exercises website – if you haven’t found it yet then check it out here – it’s free and includes lots of short exercise sessions as well as a demo of the first 15 postures that you can follow along with.
I have also been working with a couple of senior students doing one to one video coaching, again for free – and would be pleased to do the same with other existing students at whatever level.
On the health front I recently watched a program on NHK World TV which was showing an exercise developed by a Japanese doctor. These repetitive slow squats done for 20 mins twice a week were shown to burn blood sugar and body fat – to the point that they were effective in controlling diabetes and aiding weight loss. These exercises are very similar to Tai Chi and Chi Kung.
