Focusing on the ball of energy helps us relax and connect to the earth. Our shoulders drop down. We let go of tightness.
We focus on our target as we shoot the bow and arrow. This focus carries over to other activities.
As we feel the energy moving inside we begin to know ourselves better.
As the shoulders drop down and we think about the energy ball we take in more oxygen. We all need lots of Oxygen!
Students feel like they have gone outside to a beautiful place. Visualization is powerful.
Everyone does his best and has a good time. The “prize” is that you feel so good.
We focus on our roots for better balance. Just like a tree. We can balance anywhere.
The lion sleeps. We stretch and yawn. It is so calming we do it before bed to sleep better.
Children’s faces relax as we do the elephant. We have taken a trip outside. We walk across the plains of Africa. Everything is OK!
After we do Tai Chi it is fun to draw a picture of ourselves and show where we felt the peaceful warm energy. We become more aware.
