====Five Stay Downs of Tai Chi====
It is common for beginning Tai Chi practitioners to have errors in their postures, since they are still learning how to create the [[TaiChiBody Tai Chi Body]]. These errors often are spotted by certain parts of the body being raised up, rather than sunken and relaxed.

1) shoulders - The shoulders should be relaxed. People often store stress and tension in their shoulders and must gradually work this tension out of their shoulders in order to be [[TaiChiSong song]].
1) chest - The posture of the average person often has the chest raised, the chest actually needs to be sunken, to allow the body to be [[TaiChiSong song]].
1) elbows - The elbows are generally pointing //out, forward and down// in most postures. If the elbow is pointing otherwise, it indicates that the practitioner is likely committing errors.
1) buttocks - The tail bone must be sunken, otherwise the alignment of the hips and back will have errors.
1) back heel - The heels must typically remain on the ground in most postures, otherwise the practitioner will easily lost their balance.
