Our relationship to gravity defines much about us: how we move; how we age; how we present ourselves to the world. Tai chi teaches us to live with gravity and not against it, to be at home in our bodies and on this planet. Gravity is the thing that holds us to the earth and lets us rise from it. Our very posture, and everything that grows in this world, grows upward, toward the sun. Within our relationship to gravity, we have what allows us to rise.
When we are balanced between above and below, gravity becomes not a weight but a freedom from weight.
