Teaching Tai Chi to Robert De Niro

Here’s an interesting article about Robert De Niro learning Tai Chi for his latest movie, The Intern.

The article points out that Tai Chi is not the easiest thing to learn, and that the routine was customized for filming. We tend to customize a lot of moves in Tai Chi, not for filming, but for more practical purposes, making the move safer and easier for those who have a more limited ability or range of motion. If a move feels wrong or uncomfortable for you, please ask your instructor for ways to modify the movement to fit your body.

Remember, if Robert De Niro, who is 71 years old, can learn Tai Chi, it’s not too late for you to start!
