Tai Chi, Bagua and Xingyi are built on ideas of Yin & Yang. Yin Power is the ability to use a reduction of force as a martial skill. It includes the strategy of Yielding and the use of Negative Strength, which makes it sound mysterious. Luckily, it is not all mystery, but instead is built on physical abilities that can be developed. This class will guide you through this training.
The exercises in this session are largely drawn from Tai Chi & will be particularly helfpul for students interested in this tradition. But because Yin Power is intrinsic to all of the internal styles, these exercises are broadly applicable. And because they develop internal resilience, they are great as an exercise regime unto themselves. No previous experince in Tai Chi, Bagua or Xingyi is required.
