T'ai Chi Poem

One of our Oxford T'ai Chi students wrote this poem recently. We thought it was worth sharing. We hope you enjoy it and find some inspiration for your own practice.


T'ai Chi - Yang Style

Breath in, breath out,

Open the door and reach outside, grasp the sparrow's tail,

Work left then right and roll to the whip,

Gazing from side to side.

Raise hands and welcome the stork's display.

Brush low whilst twisting with the music

Open ladies hand retaining no grip.

Move spiral energy, gaze close then wide.

Feint at the end and then punch away.

Lower crossed arms and to silence slip.

Close the portal, breath out and retreat inside.
