Tai Chi Breath - Full Course

Beijing Lion

The breath is the smallest movement. Breathing is a rhythm and a skill. During trauma, your rhythm interrupted and changed. Reestablishing your healthy rhythm is critical for full recovery and provides opportunity for improvement. Central to maintaining health, good lymphatic circulation is dependent solely on movement. This helps to establish a new view of the breath movement as a balancing lymphatic pump. This course is for anyone.

What Do You Mean By 'Natural Power & Grace'?

Q.

"I've been thinking about 'grace'. 'Grace' (capitalized) represnts some kind of spiritual experience; 'grace' has something to do with harmoniously integrated movement... what do you consider to be 'Natural Grace', is it both of these or one?"

A:

Yes to both. I chose that word carefully. I feel that the purpose of training is to enrich all aspects of life's experience. For those on a spiritual path, the method is useful, for those who are not, still equally useful. Insight and truth are non-denominational. :) 

My methods emphasize the ability to engage and develop the parts of the brain associated with intention, will, restraint, discipline, empathy, compassion and insight. These things arise from deeper awareness. The result of this process is that a person strives to behave well and in accordance with the highest standards in any context. Professional, personal, private, spiritual, physical... Whatever the context, 'grace', is apparent.

'Natural' means arising from our genetic and cultural inheritance. The work is to discover these relations for ourselves. The joy is in the expression of these relations through thought and action. Hard work results in profound insight. 'Grace' connotes dignity and composure under stress. especially when taken in context with 'power'. 'Power' is central to complete and nuanced understanding of the phrase. This is a big topic.

Good question, thank you.
