Is seen in the bending of a bow:
The top of the bow is pulled downward
As the bottom is drawn upward.
These opposing actions respond
To changing tension on the string.
Thus the Tao constantly adjusts,
contracting and expanding
According to need."
from Tao Te Ching: A New Version for All Seekers by Guy Leekley with Foreward by John Friend
In our Bowspring practice we pulse, contracting and expanding, over and over. We root and rise from the Hara in the low belly.
With every exhale we root the hips back and down, fueling a rising expansion through the top of the head as we inhale. The body constantly pulses and bounces up and down in the Bowspring. We can continually adjust depending on need.
Join us this week in our Bowspring classes!
