To All Saturday Morning Tai Chi Friends 

Welcome.

As you get in your car to head to the gym,
remember “Seatbelt Tai Chi”,
i.e., check yourself with the TC principles,
begin to deepen your breath, etc.

Please be sure to arrive at least five minutes early
to allow time to shift your clothes, change your shoes
and to do any individual warm ups.

This is a silent practice.
Moving as one is a main idea.
Follow the leader and the front row.

After each set of three rounds,
we stand for a minute or two of qi gong.
Please remain quiet and still
and sink your heart/mind and breath to your center.

If you are late,
please respect the group energy
and wait for the right moment to enter the gym.
Remove your coat, etc. in the hall.
Wait for the break in the action
when the group is changing position on the floor
and changing leaders and then enter quietly.

Thanks.
