  • Alignment

    The skeleton is what provides the body with its structure. Alignment in Gong Yi Taijiquan [tai chi chuan] involves establishing correct relationship between all the major parts of the skeleton.

    – Work with gravity and body structure
    – Correct alignment to allow proper muscle and organ function
    – Good habits replace bad by repetition

  • Breathing

    Breathing is an automatic function over which there is limited voluntary control. In Gong Yi Taijiquan breathing is natural and includes movement in the chest, ribs and abdomen.

    – Coordinate breathing with movement
    – Emphasize abdominal breathing and movement of the diaphragm
    – Slower, deeper breathing is the way to serenity

  • Relaxation

    In Gong Yi Taijiquan exercise, relaxation of the body is a dynamic relaxation. It means moving the body using only those muscles, which are absolutely necessary.

    – Identify and eliminate all excess tension
    – Eliminate excess effort to create better body awareness
    – Strength with ease comes from relaxation

  • Circulation

    Complete circulation is dependent not only on the action of the heart but also on the movement. Studies have shown that Taijiquan exercise leads to only mildly elevated heart rate but does not lead to a larger increase in stroke volume.

    – Utilize the body’s largest muscles
    – Alternate tension and relaxation
    – Complete, efficient circulation is essential for health

  • Yin & Yang

    According to the Chinese philosophical system called Taoism; every thing is formed by the interaction of opposites. Opposites of any kind are termed Yin Yang.

    – Yin and Yang are constantly transforming
    – One always contains the seed of the opposite
    – One cannot exist without the other
