This is a bit tangential, but what the heck. A big part of tai ji quan is the mind-body connection, which many people come to understand as a sensitivity to their internal energy flow that they gradually develop with TJQ and accompanying cultivation practices, such as jibengong, neigong, qigong, etc. Many people who've practiced Pan Gu Shengong
for just a short while, perhaps as little as a month or three, have found that when they later learned TJQ postures, they were immediately able to sense the meaningful difference of subtle changes in body alignment that it takes a lot of people months or years to develop with TJQ practice alone.
This was my experience and it made learning TJQ a lot easier and quicker for me to understand its value. Because I could feel the effect of the posture and the difference between subtle changes from the very first TJQ class, I never had to ask teacher, "Why should I move this way or not that way?" Several other PGSG students I've met had the same experience.
Pan Gu Shengong originator, Ou Wen Wei is based in downtown SF. It's the easiest to learn energy cultivation I've ever seen. A single, one-hour class and that's all you need as far as supervision.
