“Tai Chi uses serenity to counter activity. Even when you are moving, you remain tranquil. When practicing the postures, the slower you move, the better the result. Slowness enables your breath to become deep and long with the chi sinking to the Dan Tien. This will naturally prevent the pulse rate from elevating.”
-Tai Chi Classics
“When you learn to balance the 5 Elements your Chi begins to flow more easily and you can experience a dramatic increase in strength and vitality.
“In fact, the reason the 5 Elements are a foundation for Chinese medicine is because the harmony of Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal in your body is essential for life.”
