Here is my mid-week update from Tai Chi Immersion Week 2013 at Brookline Tai Chi.
It's pretty cool to see folks come from all over to train for a week, but you really have to have the right mind set to make the most of the format.
See what I mean here:
When you practice, be sure to include a clear:
- Warm-up: where you settle in and transition from the rest of your day.
- Ramp-up: where the real "training" happens and you work on specific attributes of your practice.
- Integration period: where you don't try to do anything new, but let the work from the ramp-up period settle down.
- Buffer: where, without making an abrupt shift, you transition back into the rest of your day.
Whether you practice for 20 minutes or twice a day for a week, if you look for these rhythms, you will build more energy and deepen your Tai Chi practice.
