As Nate and I were discussing specific breathing challenges in qigong and Tai Chi, he started to explain the way he had learned to work with breathing and movement in his yoga training.
It’s fascinating to compare strategies for working with the mind-body connection across different systems, and while this is by no means a definitive exploration of similarities and differences, I think you’ll see that there are two distinct approaches.
Does this difference make sense to you? How does it compare to other breathing/meditation/mindfulness practices you’ve explored? Leave a comment and let us know!
