Relax & loosen the joints
However, that doesn’t really do it justice as it is so much more than just relaxation. It’s a sense of opening, loosening, and stretching out of the joints from within.
Kind of like tense and release of muscles.
How Does It Work?
Rest & Chillax
The power of visualization
Song uses a lot of visualization to gently stretch your joints and relieve tension. In essence, a controlled relaxation to build internal strength and improve flexibility.
As you work your way through the Tai Chi moves visualize the following:
Upper limbs: Loosening your elbows, wrists, and finger joints by stretching them out in the opposite direction, almost like gently pulling the joint open.
In the spine: Loosening would be vertical. Visualize your spine as a string of pearls that you gently stretch from both ends.
Lower limbs: Stretch your hip joints and knee joints gently outwards.
