It’s been raining for the past few days here so I haven’t had a chance to practice my Tai Chi form outside.
Today I’ll practice the form indoors.
The difficulty is that I’ve haven’t enough clear space to practice the entire form continously.
So rather than miss out on my scheduled training session I’ll go to Plan B.
Plan B in this case is to perform the form in a stop start manner without focusing on continous movement.
For each point of the form I stop and hold the posture for 5 seconds. Then go to the next point.
For example, let’s look at the opening posture.
- Raise arms up – stop
- bend elbows – stop
- lower hands – stop
Because of the weather conditions this is a good alternative than not practicing at all.
So, don’t let rainy days stop you from practicing.
Adapt and keep practicing!
