T’ai chi is an ancient, health-giving, consciousness-raising ‘exercise’ regime that originated around 1,000 years ago in China. It comprises a sequence of postures, performed with great care and slowness. Breathing is calmed and deepened; distractions evaporate while a sense of ‘centredness’ and equanimity develop. It produces strength, energy and self-awareness. The actions are not merely repetitions and it is vital to pay attention to what you are doing or you will certainly lose your way. ThusT’ai Chi cannot be done automatically but requires wakeful attention – the mind is alert throughout.
I have been working with T'ai Chi since 1969. I have given numerous group and individual classes (even to stars of film and TV) in the UK and in other countries. At present I am offering individual sessions at Dufourstrasse 131 (30 seconds from AWCZ), and I run an early morning group class (06.25 on a Wednesday) in Zürich. I have had several teachers including Dr. Chi Chiang Tao of Taiwan, a direct student of Cheng Man Ch'ing. We will practice the Cheng Short Form introduced by preliminary "exercises".
