Balance

T'ai Chi Chih® is great for balance. Remember to move with your legs and let your hands and arms follow. It is like walking on a tight rope. Use your arms keep you balanced. If you lead with your hands you will fall. Next time you practice feel the movement. Keep your balance. Bring your mind down into the souls of your feet. Let your arms follow. Avoid the pitfalls. You may not have a safety net.

When preparing to take a forward or side step, use the image of placing your heel down into a body of water . . . without making a ripple. You cannot step and not make a ripple in the water, unless you are completely shifted and grounded on the substantial leg. Use the same image when retrieving the foot.
