Qigong includes silk Reeling for Tai Chi for Health - Silk reeling exercises (Chan Si Gong) can be viewed as repetitive movements practiced in sets using simplified forms to enhance the spiralling character of the movements in a relaxed and safe manner.  Key terms for our purposes are -

• Relaxation
• Mind- body awareness
• Co-ordination


While there may be specific exercises found in the traditional Chen style of Tai Chi Chuan from where the term has been derived historically, it is important to understand that the concept of silk reeling or spiral force is something that can apply to all styles of Tai Chuan and especially to Tai Chi for Health where the focus is on improving health, fitness and wellbeing.

Don’t be a slave to any predetermined sequence.

Let the freestyle sequence of slow and controlled deflect anxiety and stress,

training your mind to find a rhythm and pattern that neutralizes anger and pain

reflected in the rear-view mirror of life.

Be motivated through the discipline of sustained effort, drills, repetition with focussed practice,

don’t become a victim to rage in life or on the road and hooked on speed.

Go with the flow, more power to you!!
