Tai Chi Chuan for Musicians 2

Course Number
PSH-360
Description

With a firm foundation of the principles learned and practiced in PSH-P260 Tai Chi Chuan for Musicians 1, this course goes deeper into the art of tai chi and and its many benefits. Students learn additional postures and two-person push hands (also called sensing hands), and further refine their body mechanics. Students move with internal energy while differentiating this energy from locked-in muscle tension. This course emphasizes how the sensitivity acquired through this practice relates to healthier technique, performance, and endurance. Students review the first 20 postures of the 60 movement form from PSH-P260 Tai Chi Chuan for Musicians 1 and learn the remaining 40. Once the complete choreography is learned, this entire sequence can be incorporated into a daily wellness practice to support overall health and well-being in a short amount of time.
