Reflections on practice

The mind, as it directs the body’s movements should be focused and relaxed.  Even after many years of practicing the same exercises you keep your mind’s attention on the actions by observing as well as correcting your body movements, noticing the different feelings and sensations as they arise. As the body/mind connection strengthens, natural awareness of yourself and your environment increases, helping you function more productively in day to day life.

The exercises need to be practiced regularly, with increasing familiarity making the muscle member and performance more productive. Over time you will notice changes in your whole self, relative to your own physical make up and life experiences. 

People approaching Tai Chi/Qigong expecting instant benefits may or may not get what they are looking for. But the real life changing effects are realised through consistent long term practice, so notice over time the marked physical and psychological changes you experience……from the time before you began practicing to where you are now.
