Tai Chi Level 2: Breathe Better

Sigung Richard Clear taught how to use breath incorporated into the whole body to get better connection and power. The key to this is softness (no surprise for Tai Chi players!), letting the breath get infused into the movements.

This principle is used with gentle expansion and contraction/relaxation, along with good shape and structure. When these things are tied together there is an obvious escalation of power without needing any extra tension or force.

In the full class we covered many breathing concepts, including a smooth transition from in to out breaths (and vice versa). We also touched on the importance of breath for health and healing.
