Tai Chi lesson at Exhibition building
I met up with Darren on the last day of 2006 for a tai chi session. We stretched out under the huge trees guarding the entrance to the world hertiage listed Exhibition building in Carlton.
These photos show Darren demonstrating his new moves from the opening sequence of the Yang form. As a beginner student of the yang form, Darren is working out the main stances and the feel of the transfer of weight. Empty and full foot. In tai chi we are looking for the connection between heaven and earth. To anchor like a tree's roots with the footwork. This gives the confidence in balance and form.
After our tai chi practice we headed to Brunswick street for coffee and breakfast. A perfect last morning to 2006.
