Inner Balance—T'ai Chi Simple Exercise

Provided by: 

Ground your energy with this simple exercise
As you practice, pay attention to the sensations in your body. Breathe in and out through your nose, and place your tongue on the roof of your mouth.

1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hands at your sides. Sink into your stance, tuck your tailbone, and relax your hips, shoulders, and throat. Inhale and raise your hands up to shoulder height as though you are holding an imaginary ball. Exhale slowly.

2. Inhale and expand the ball to shoulder width, feeling your body expand as well. Breathe out as you return the ball to its smaller size. Inhale vitality; exhale negativity.

3. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart in a relaxed stance, keeping your knees soft, your body weight centered, and your tailbone moving down between your legs. Inhale slowly and deeply while raising your arms to shoulder height, palms facing the floor. Soften your gaze.

4. Exhale slowly while lowering your arms and bending your knees. Keep the spine straight and your tailbone slightly tucked. Lower the body until your knees are over the tops of your toes. Your palms, parallel to the floor, should move to the sides of your hips as your knees and elbows bend.
