Unlock Your Kua: 

The Key to Better Mobility in Tai Chi

Learn how to improve your Tai Chi movements by opening up your "kua," the area where your leg joins with your pelvis. Discover the critical role the kua plays in mobility, knee health, and alignment in Tai Chi. By strengthening your glutes, core, and keeping your knee aligned, you can move like a ball, rotate effortlessly, and reduce the risk of knee damage. Improve your Tai Chi experience and achieve better mobility by focusing on keeping the kua open and your knees properly aligned.
