Inner smile – keep the corners of your mouth up when practicing your Tai Chi – helps avoid tensing your facial muscles or grimacing 🙂

Waist leads the arms – e.g. Tai Chi Grasping the bird’s tail – move your waist & allow your arms to follow – think waist not arms.
Be aware of Yin & Yang in your form – e.g. Left leg forward: Left leg & right arm are Yang – Right leg and left arm are Yin.
When extending your arms – don’t lock your elbow joints – leave some Yin there (slightly bent).
When you practice the Tai Chi form focus on one theme only e.g. breathing, balance, Yin Yang, alignment etc.
