INSTRUCTOR: Paul Brewer
Taiji 37, also called Nanpai or Southern School Taiji, are standing postures, the techniques from which modern Taiji forms and styles have developed. Taiji 37 Postures are a more concentrated study than conventional Form practice, wherin participants tend to move on to the next “place” too rapidly to develop internal forces. Each Posture has its own characteristic spontaneous movements, arising from correct mental attitude, concentration and posture.
Their function is to awaken the dantian (energy centre) and cultivate Taiji forces, primarily vibration force, spontaneous movement force & mental force. These forces are innate to everyone but mostly dormant, so many Taijiquan practitioners have not yet experienced internal movement sensations, thus do not know how to develop Taijijin.
These forces clear negative, stale, stagnant and potentially illness causing factors (BinQi) from the body, removing blockages and regulating bodily functions. Practice can refine, guide and concentrate the movements, so that when the Qi moves abundantly Spontaneous Movements can lead towards the more familiar “Form” changes. This process can produce profound and rapid changes, leaving one cleansed, revitalised and invigorated.
