…is it any wonder confusion sets in? There’s so many questions that remain unanswered and perhaps you’re even asking yourself; "will any of these things really suit me anyway?"
The thing is: If you’ve ALREADY tried some of these methods – did they help? Did they help for the long-term? Did you really ENJOY any of these activities? Did you feel you had to live up to the ‘no pain, no gain’ way of thinking?
Do you really want to risk a serious sports injury especially if you’re over 40?… seniors especially should keep in mind that intensive exercise may actually weaken resistance to disease.
But, think about it. Regular exercise can have a huge beneficial impact on your health. Studies show people who keep physically active…
Research consistently shows exercise leads to the release, in the body, of natural pain-relieving substances called endorphins, which help people cope better with painful conditions, reducing the need for medications. And, since endorphins also improve the body’s response to stress, exercise helps you deal better with demanding situations.
So, you probably want to keep active, but with a type of activity you can enjoy, sustain and look forward to, without dreading it or gasping for breath.
My name is Dr. Stewart McFarlane, scholar of Chinese Religions and Buddhism and a teacher of Chinese Martial Arts.
I was Director of Asian Studies at Liverpool Hope University until I retired in 2004, and Visiting Professor at the Chung Hwa Institute of Buddhist Studies in Taiwan in 1993-1994.
I was also a personal student of Master Zhao Wei Dong, a leading T’ai Chi teacher in Penang, Malaysia.
Not only that, I’ve served in the close personal security team protecting His Holiness the Dalai Lama on his UK visits.
As the author of numerous publications on Buddhism, Chinese Religions and Martial Arts, I’ve never known a time when so many people are actively seeking the health giving benefits T’ai Chi can bring.
I’ve found this method to be the most effective way to express the true essence of the T’ai Chi Form.
When you use this system, you can just dip in and out, frame-by-frame, to perfect every action sequence. This is exactly the kind of information you need to separate you from the average.
In short, I’ve developed a different, more practical, style of teaching that’s easy to follow and proven. I’ll give you the benefit of my 25 years with numerous hints and tips (with a few of my own personal secrets thrown in) to make it easy and convenient for you. Best of all… you can refer back to this course at any time and any place of your choosing.
Stewart McFarlane’s accurate breakdown of the form is presented in clear and easy to follow graphics and text. The realistic and precise drawings of the figure doing the form can also be run as an animated sequence in the PowerPoint presentation, making it available to learners of the form to learn the positions and movements in their own time, and at a comfortable pace to suit them.
So for the first time, self-learners are not forced to learn at the speed of a teacher or class, but to control their own rate of progress."
Many thousands of people worldwide, having discovered T’ai Chi are now embracing it and seeing real results with growing numbers now accepting it as a welcome and refreshing new way of life. Quite simply: T’ai Chi embodies the secrets of successful living...Read More detail
