Why and how you can have it all

Practicing a complete routine is based on the unity of these contradictions:

Yin and Yang - in complete balance
Yin and Yang – in complete balance
  • yin and yang
  • movement and stillness
  • emptiness and fullness of breath
  • strength and grace
  • forwards and backwards
  • upwards and downwards
  • left and right
  • where there is high, there is low
  • energy in and out
  • excitement and restraint of central nervous system
  • raise and lower
  • pull and push.

  1. Relaxing the top of the head.
  2. Withdrawing the chest whilst strengthening the back.
