Sometimes I lose focus and speed up the form. A 15-20 minute workout suddenly becomes a 10-12 minute sprint.
This happens occassionaly when I’ve been busy working and then rush out into the garden to fit in my Tai Chi training.
I’m in more of a speed mode and to slow things down I concentrate on slowing my arm movements which then slows the body and leg movements.
It’s not pure Tai Chi, as the objective is to flow into the form without thinking. You just do and the form takes care of it self.
But it is a good technique on occassions when I’m distracted and need to slow the form down.
So if you are in a rush and you do want something of a Tai Chi workout, slow your arms down.
