tonic for the heart- calming breath from belinda ackermann on Vimeo.

these are ancient chinese martial arts that bring about personal transformation through movement, breath and meditation.
here’s a fabulous quote from rick barrent that goes a long way to mapping the dynamics, of this practice ‘yang & yin are not opposing forces so much as complementary aspects of an underlying unity. hot is yang because it is an expansion. cold is yin and a contraction. all energy is a pulse between expansion and contraction. computers render all information into ’ones’ (yang) & ‘zeros’ (yin)… its effectiveness depends on first recognising the dual nature of all that exists & then transcending that duality’
