If training at home means working in a small space, then this simple repeated movement sequences ideal. Using no more space than one stride forward, and backward from your central (Wuji) posture, you can practice two of the most iconic tai chi chum movements.
These two techniques contain a variety of empty steps, and differing timing of weight shift, don't forget to include the all important 'Whole body power' where on turn of the waist powers two different and almost simultaneous techniques. Add in focus, visualisation, and coordinated breathing, and its all there. You can work out and develop your skill for hours in a square metre.
Now f you choose to move outside for more space, you can simply scale it up by adding multiple steps on alternate sides both directions. Try 3 forward, and 3 back, get the weight, alignment and timing right. Hours of fun practice to ingrain fundamental Tai Chi Chuan principle in to your body/mind/nueral network.
The video below is intended to build upon your class/coursework. It does briefly introduce each technique, and goes on to demonstrate both Square andRound form versions, so if you haven't covered it yet all the essential ingredients are there.
If you subscribe to the notion of 10,000 daily steps to keep you well? you could do much worse than make these two techniques a couple of thousand of those daily steps. After a month or two you will have a much different understanding of two of Tai chi chuans most iconic techniques.
