Back to the (tai chi) basics. Breathing practice. Postures. Zhong ding. Dantian gong. Chan si qin. Qi go through. Whole body moves as single unit. Develop spine power and sensitivity not only for balance, but even more for energy refining. Develop dantian for both of those benefits and with more volume energy than a linear alignment. These are the things we focus on in class. I call this developing our tai nature. We are developing awareness then cultivating ability and refining both. It doesn’t matter which form you do or even the kind of martial art … hard, as well as soft. This will soften you though and improve longevity, too.
