part 1 and 2
also known as the 10 form tai chi, or the 8 form tai chi.
This routine is a modern simplified routine, first taught in Beijing in 1999. It is very popular with beginners.
Part 1 and 2: Preparation and Commencement, or “Wuji becomes Taiji”
Wuji refers to non-duality. Yin and Yang are still, and “combine.” The idea is to be empty of all thought, motivation, effort, and intent…to be perfectly balanced, like an open string of pearls balanced on end.
Taiji refers to duality. Yin and yang separate, and there is now movement and direction. But even then, the quality of Wuji is inherent within all things.
