Silk Reeling

Silk reeling is the principal method of movement within Chen Tai Chi. It is considered the essence of Tai Chi as a whole and helps develop health, relaxation, and martial abilities. Silk reeling exercises involve continuous rounded and spiral movements utilising the whole body. The continuous movements loosen the joints and develop relaxation, efficiency of movement, and whole body power.

This unit explores the fundamental principles of silk reeling, including the basic "cloud hands" exercise, from which all other silk reeling exercises are derived, and is a skill you'll keep practising and improving at along with your Tai Chi. It's suitable for everyone and is great as part of a daily practice routine.
