Tai Chi Chuan: the ‘Wu Ji’ postures

While we are a school of moving, we do have a few standing postures we will be doing before or after moving drills and forms. In particular the Wuji posture will be done to open and close moving.  We just do not do 40 to 60 minutes of standing in one session where time is of the essence to be used towards moving through the form and postures.

Wuji
This is the opportunity to clear your mind of thoughts, to relax, be in the moment, focus your qi by aligning your body, lift head, drop shoulders and elbows, relax chest, round back, and open ming men. We want to be natural and non-forced.  Breath at the low dan tien for some time (36 cycles). Absorb into the wuji: state of Oneness, beyond ego!
