CLIPS FROM VOLUME 1

CLIPS FROM VOLUME 2

 

VOLUME 1– This video was filmed in a beautiful park in Pennsylvania on a perfect day. Practicing outdoors with nature all around is good for the spirit because it is as natural as Tai Chi. The DVD begins with our usual warm-up exercises along with a step by step lesson on a Yang Style Cheng Man-Ch'ing form. The chi-kong routines are some of the very favorite exercises featuring “LOTUS FLOWER” which Mark Cashatt uses to end his class. Also featured is a set of Ban Dan Jin exercises and the “Temple Exercises” passed down from teacher to teacher.

VOLUME 2– Most of the second video was filmed on the beach early in the morning. The beach is a perfect location to practice Tai Chi because just the movement of the crashing waves shows tai chi principles and many people believe they get a lot of energy off the waves. The DVD features more chi-kong routines created from individual chi-kong movements that by themselves could be repeated for unlimited minutes– but presented in a manner that flows in to the next movement so that the participant can quickly remember many such exercises. Also featured on this video is more intense instruction on the Cheng Man-Ch'ing form, a short Chen form and a short Wu form.

VOLUME 3– The idea of this volume was to present “seated” ways of doing HAPPY THOUGHT TAI CHI. On this video you will find versions of the routines found in Volume 1 & 2 while sitting in a chair– for those who could benefit from the movements but don't have the best balance. If a participant is worried about balance while doing chi-kong– participant can start sitting until strength and knowledge of movement is more common knowledge (through repetition), then the participant should try standing. Also featured on this video are a bunch of standing routines and  two complete ancient Chen Style forms filmed primarily to use as research viewing while learning the form in private or group lessons. These forms are extraordinarily beautiful but very difficult to learn without a qualified instructor to guide them.
