Chef Marty was my I.T. person extraordinaire. He brought his imac so that the participants could enjoy learning the Standing Crane animal frolics with Master Paul Gallagher. We had just reviewed the principles of Tai Chi so it was fantastic to hear Paul G. demonstrating them as he taught the Crane frolics.
After a round of TCA and Part 2, we played "Tai Chi Create a Move". The only rule is that it must follow Tai Chi principles. We collaborated to create a sequence of two sweet moves: Sparrow Walking flowing into Fleeing Sparrow. Darn! We didn't get a video of that, but I can assure you it was very wonderful.
Chef Marty cut and served the scrumptious yin yang carrot cake he made while we watched the video of Dr. Lam demonstrating the 73 Sun Style form, from in front and from behind. We have begun this form , up to the 3rd piece, but we've all realized that less is more right now....we are staying with TCA and Part 2 and working on going a bit deeper and smoother with those for awhile.
I handed out their holiday Tai Chi party favors and then their Big Deal Tai Chi Certificates in Recognition of their special achievement of having learned all of TCA and Part 2.
A good time was had by all!
