Tai Chi: The Empowering Workout With Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson
Instructor: Jerry Alan Johnson (Instructor Profile)
Certified instructor description:
The beauty and the power of Tai Chi Chuan is created in the way that one moves. In essence, the mastery of one move is far superior to the learning of a hundred Tai Chi moves. The purpose of this program is not to teach a series of complicated postures, but to simplify and clarify the physical, energetic and mental dynamics that empower the beautiful movements of Tai Chi Chuan. The first section explores the structural mechanics that are universal to all Tai Chi Chuan styles. Section two loosens and lubricates all the joints of the body. Section three integrates the structural mechanics into ten Tai Chi postures. The final section combines mind intent and inner body skill to maximize the strength, energy, and circulation of power flowing throughout all Tai Chi Chuan movements. This program combines breathtaking nature footage set to the inspiring music of Jonn Serrie, with Master Instructor Jerry Alan Johnson guiding you visually while the mesmerizing words of actor John Saxon (Enter the Dragon) carries you to uncharted levels of energy and power.
