What is the Taiji 37 Form?

The Taiji 37 form, created by Dr. Shen Hongxun, is based on the principles of NanPai (Southern School) Taijiquan, also called Taiji 37, a series of standing postures which are the basic techniques from which modern Taiji forms and styles have developed. The Form consists of 37 positions flowing seamlessly from one into the next. The force from the earth is used to activate the Dantian, the energy centre of the body,  developing energy force so it can move the body with great ease. This energy force can initiate Spontaneous Movement, helping to open and clean both the physical and energetic elements of the body. 

The function of these techniques is to awaken the Dantian and thus cultivate Taijijin (Taiji forces), primary of which are Vibration force, Spontaneous Movement force, and Concentration force. These forces are innate to everyone but in most people they are dormant. Many practitioners of Taijiquan have never experienced the sensation of movement of their inner energy and do not know how to discover and develop these Taijijin. 

When practised, the postures stretch and open different energy channels and activate the Qi circulations, helping to expel pathogenic factors (Binqi) from the body. Students learn to control and guide these internal movements through the cultivation of strong mental force. 

Taiji was created as a martial art and used for combat prior to the advent of modern weapons. Modern Taijiquan has shifted towards a more health-orientated purpose, but the forces used for health and healing are exactly the same. In Taiji 37 we continue to learn the martial applications associated with each position, which enables us to clearly understand the point of Concentration and to focus our minds on  directing the force.

How will you Benefit from the Taiji 37 Form Course?

Practising Taiji has been demonstrated to have a positive benefit to the health of the practitioner in numerous modern medical studies, not only in treating existing conditions, but in preventing new ones. Many people think that Taijiquan improves health because it activates the Qi circulations. However, the main reason is because it expels Binqi (negative, stale, stagnant and potentially illness causing factors). Pushing the Binqi out of the body through the meridians allows the Qi to circulate more freely again, removing blockages in the energy channels and optimising the circulation of the internal vital energy or life force, correcting and regulating bodily functions and improving the quality of health and wellbeing. 

Taiji Practice can produce swift changes in the body and the internal energy system, clearing stale and negative factors from the body at all four levels; physical, energetic, mental and spiritual, leaving one cleansed, revitalised, invigorated and lightened. The philosophy of Taiji, based on Yin and Yang, can be considered to be the study of change, highly relevant in a rapidly changing modern world. 

Practice of this form combines the benefits of exercise, meditation, art and energy work and strongly integrates your physical, mental and energy systems. Sensitivity, grace, balance, composure, awareness and personal power are all enhanced. Taiji means “without limits” and the Taiji symbol represents the infinitely large unlimited cosmos. The Taiji 37 Postures contained in the Form use specific techniques to help our energy and awareness to expand to the size of the cosmos!  Learning the Form gives the practitioner an extremely clear exercise routine which can become an enjoyable daily habit from which the benefits increase as the practitioner’s knowledge and skill develops.
