CONTACT Yan Li <firstname.lastname@example.org> for questions regarding this workshop series.
This 3-part workshop series is both an introduction and an in-depth exploration of the eight energies, and is suitable for - beginners of Taijiquan (no prior experience required; workshops #1 and #2 are prerequisites of subsequent ones); - experienced Taijiquan students interested in improving the quality of their movements in hand forms and/or in push hands (no restriction on styles but we will be using examples from Chen Style forms)
At the workshops, participants will - learn and grasp the eight energy drills in discrete exercises and in a sequential flow; - explore and practice where and how each energy is expressed in the form sequences using select postures in Chen Family Taijiquan Laojia Yilu and Laojia Erlu (you don't need to have learned these forms to be able to follow the workshop program); - explore and practice how to apply the eight energies in pushhands through simple (and fun!) partner exercises.
