I have been walking around with a big smile on my face for the last two weeks. All eight students who completed last year’s Tai Chi for Beginners course have returned for the Tai Chi for Improvers course. I’ve really benefited from their help and support whilst working out the structure, content and pacing of the Beginners class, and I’m really looking forward to exploring the ten principles of our Tai Chi form together this academic year.
And if that wasn’t enough to smile about, the next Tai Chi for Beginners course has just kicked off too. Running on a Thursday evening down at the Barry Island Community Centre, I’ve been lucky see a great group of students enrol for this year’s course, and by the New Year we’ll be able to see who has decided that Tai Chi is for them. (Tai Chi classes in Adult Continuing Education understandably suffer quite the drop-out rate).
Now that the classes are back, I’ll be back regularly blogging about Tai Chi and my experiences teaching it. I hope someone finds it useful; I see so little written about teaching Tai Chi.
