There’s lots of reasons people want to learn Tai Chi; to improve their balance and posture, to help heal a physical injury, or to simply teach them to calm their mind, reduce stress and help them relax.
There’s also different ways you can learn; from a book or DVD at home, or with a private tutor or local Tai Chi class. I’ve even had some fun learning with Xbox Kinect. Each method has it’s benefits and there’s so many books and DVDs available, it’s hard to know where to begin. Well let me introduce you to something new, that I think you’ll like – Tai Cheng.
Introducing Tai Cheng
Tai Cheng is a home DVD programme, taught by Dr Mark Cheng; who has been teaching Tai Chi for over 20 years and is also trained in modern sports science. The Tai Cheng course covers the 18 fundamental Tai Chi movements, along with some extra Qi Gong exercises, whilst all the time focusing on your posture and how you move.
Tai Cheng is brought to us by Beachbody, the company behind P90X and Insanity. This time bringing something totally new to the table. A workout (of sorts) to help support everything else, giving you more agility, less stress and increased energy in everything you do. Other benefits include; improved circulation, coordination and balance.
Who is Tai Cheng for?
Tai Cheng really is for everybody, both young and old will find huge benefit from doing this programme. The course will teach you all you need to know in 90 days, after which you’ll be fully trained and equipped to continue practicing the art of Tai Chi.
The kit includes 12 workout DVDs, an introduction DVD, a guide book and nutrition guide, a workout calender and a bonus DVD: Applied Travel and Sport. You’ll also get beginner and intermediate strength bands and a foam roller that you’ll see used in some of the sessions.
