May your search to learning Tai Chi be a good one.
My journey to Tai Chi began many years ago with an intro to the Tao in reading Hoff's Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet.
The books on my nightstand now are Deng Ming-Dao's 365 Tao and Lunar Tao.
I am a Tao student of Ming-Dao.
One of his suggestions is to find a master to learn more from. If he was offering Tai-Chi lessons I would be his student.
There are several styles of Tai Chi and many resources to help you learn.
A resource is the TAI CHI for every body by Eva and Karel Koskuba.
This book has great information about many things Tai Chi. I recommend reading it.
Check it out and more from the
Clay County Library or the
St. Johns County Library
For other Tai Chi resources check at:
Baker County Library
Jacksonville Public Library has Ming-Dao Books
Nassau County Library
Yang Master Moy Style
If you are comfortable in a group setting, I would research the local Tai Chi Society Classes.
The instructors volunteer their time and patience. You meet people and learn together. Search Google for their link and more info.
You can usually take the first class for free and decide if it's for you.
Yang, Chuan, and Combat
If you are independent and prefer learning at home, I recommend my teacher and his school from Phoenix / Tempe Arizona: Jake Mace.
He has many free YouTube videos -- example 1: Jake's Yang style 1st few moves.
example 2: Vlog #1 from his daily August 2016 vlog commitment. Don't miss it!
He also sells DVDs: complete Yang Style, Chuan, combat, and a very reasonable monthly subscription to his video library.
He also teaches KungFu, Qigong, Martial Arts, and urban gardening.
