According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, in the absence of trauma, a person will maintain good health as long as Qi and Blood circulate freely in their body. Any type of muscular or mental tension can partially obstruct this circulation, creating a premise for the development of illness. Ancient arts like Qigong and Taijiquan understand this well and share the goal of enhancing the flow of Qi. .In Chinese-English dictionaries, “fang song” is almost inevitably translated “relax”. While this is technically correct, the less used definition of “loosen” is a better fit for a Western mind. However, an even better definition might be “non-tension”: maintaining proper structure and alignment while utilizing the minimum amount of tension necessary to achieve it. Quite different from the Western idea of relaxation, which usually ends up with collapsed posture.In this workshop, we will discover how to recognize accumulated tensions in our bodies and remove them and how to maintain a continuous state of non tension. Because movement requires muscular tension, learning to continuously melt the tension as we practice Qigong, Taijiquan or simply while being active can have a powerful influence on our lives and our wellbeing.
