Tai-Chi based Yogea Flow: Withdraw to Advance (welcoming the Year of the Horse)


This brief Tai-chi inspired Yogea breathing and moving meditation is intended to create a strong sense of sturdiness in motion and improved concentration so we can target our ideas clearly and more deliberately. The movements are derived from Chinese Kung-fu, and particularly the style of the horse that is brisk, powerful, grounded and explosive. Smooth weight shifting is practiced with the legs, while swift coordination is conducted with the arms. The breathing is continuous and emphasizes exhalation at every forward motion, and inhalation at every retreat. The practice trains the quality of “Wu-wei” or “doing in non-doing” and allows us to juggle with paradox both in our meditative and kinetic practice and in life.
