Tai Chi, Osho Form

Postby Zir » Mon Apr 13, 2015 8:02 pm

The Osho form of Tai Chi was found at one esoteric site. What do you think about it in comparison with classical form - is it extra simplification, or something useful anyway?

Here are the pictures:

Image
1. Beginning of Tai Chi

Image
2. Spread wild horse's mane

Image
3. White crane spreads wings

Image
4. Brush knee and push

Image
5. Playing guitar

Image
6. Step back to repulse monkey, right

Image
7. Step back to repulse monkey, left

Image
8. Grasp sparrows tail: ward off,

Image
roll back, press,

Image
push

Image
Image
9. Waving hands like clouds

Image
10. Single whip

Image
11-13. High pat on horse, lifting hands, double punch to the ears

Image
14. Turn and kick with the right heel

Image
15. Golden rooster stands on one leg (right)

Image
16. Fair lady works the shuttle

Image
17. Needle at sea bottom

Image
18-19. Blue dragon flies up from water, fan through the back

Image
Image
20. Twist body, parry and punch

Image
21. Withdraw and push

Image
Image
22. Conclusion

All opinions are interesting! :tap:

Hi Zir, I have practiced Tai Chi a bit, and as I see from this pictures, it's really simplified form. Main movements are there, but sometimes they are being done only for the right side of the body, and there is no the same movement for the left side. For example, here I kick only with the right foot and not with the left. Is it good? As body exercise - no. As meditation in movement - probably yes, but the same meditation works in any movement, not necessarily it will be Tai Chi.
So I would rather stay with classical form. But thank you for sharing, anyway it is interesting. At least to remind about Tai Chi :)
