Laojia Yilu (Old Frame Routine One):
Sections One and Two Corrections

In this workshop, Chen Huixian will work with students on Sections One and Two of the Laojia Yilu form. The class will go through the first two sections of the long form, posture by posture, movement by movement.

This is the traditional method of training Tai Chi in Chenjiagou (the Chen Village). It is a very slow and intense process that helps students to refine the individual details of each posture. There will also be time for students to ask questions about specific movements in this section.
