The basic levels of Tai Chi are so effective at improving health and well-being that many practitioners are not tempted to go beyond studying it as a slow, relaxed exercise. They happily do their twenty minutes a day or attend a weekly class and reap those benefits. Many are not aware that there are deeper levels in the Tai Chi art that can take them to the Promised Land of the ” health of a lumberjack, flexibility of a child, and peace of mind of a sage.”
In these modern times, Tai Chi Books, videos, classes and workshops are easily available. As Tai Chi becomes popular and teachers are in demand, short training courses churn out poorly qualified instructors. Predictably, much of the depth of the true Tai Chi art is lost.
