Taiji Day 4: Breath

It’s always hard to believe how much breath takes control of your body during a taiji exercise.  At the beginning of the exercise, you start breathing the way that the teacher told you to breathe because that’s the way your teacher told you it’s done.  And then, by the end, the taiji exercise is breathing you.  The lungs clear out, all the little stiffnesses and aches in the joints smooth out, and the eyes clear.  And yet, it’s not you doing these things.  It’s the Taiji.

Ideally.  Some days are better than others.
