Unfortunately for many communities Taoist Tai Chi is the only thriving group available. I have read some of the older posts from 2008 and although this can be a very controversial topic I was hoping to get a little guidance. Three years ago as a group of 4-6 individuals we worked on the 24 Movement Yang style from DVDs - almost impossible I know, but it was gratifying. Over a year we covered about half the moves and were able to do small flows through the movements we learned before our numbers shrunk to not being viable anymore. Fast forward to today and there is a very large Taoist Tai Chi group close to where I live. Back in 2008 there didn't seem to be much demonstrable material available, but now there are many videos of Moy style on YouTube and a YouTube channel called "Awareness" that has "First 17 Moves of Awareness Tai Chi" and 4 break-down intro videos titled "FREE Introduction to Awareness Tai Chi" that covers the first 17 moves of the 108 Moy style very well. I am a senior looking to find ways to keep moving with a social group and the Taoist Tai Chi group appears, for me at least, to fill this need. Now my question is - are there some general overall pointers that one can incorporate into, for example the first 17 moves, to make one more grounded and qi friendly? In other words, are there some subtle Yang principles that could be kept in mind while doing the Moy style?
