Tricia Yu reviews the Yang Style short form (Cheng Man-ch’ing lineage), its principles, and its philosophy.

The video provides 90 minutes of instruction and includes:

  • Introduction: history, philosophy, health benefits, and practical applications of tai chi (8 min).
  • Demonstration of the form: front view (11 min).
  • Teaching in five sections (60 min). Each section includes:
    • Basic principles
    • Step-by-step form review

The teaching section is filmed with a mirrored backdrop that allows the viewer to see the movements simultaneously from three angles – front, back, and sides.
