 Tai Chi For Health & Vitality: A Comprehensive Gui (View larger image)

Tai chi is good for everyone, of any age or fitness level. An experienced tai chi teacher presents one of the most popular styles - the Short Yang form - and shows complete beginners how they too can enjoy its many health benefits. These richly illustrated and information-filled pages make it amazingly easy to follow every move. Generously sized photographs with numbered, comprehensive instructions show all the positions in every sequence. Inset close-ups focus in on details. There's also guidance on shifting body weight and notations on when to inhale and exhale. Begin with a warm-up, and then try narrow stances, diagonal steps, steps that go backwards and sideways, rotations and turns, and closing movements. For easy reference, a summary of movements features 160 mini-photographs.
