Skill takes time to build. Talent takes time to nurture. So if you want to perform better right now, there's only one way: Feel more confident. Everyone's been there.

To clear out energy blockages, P.M. T'ai Chi with expert CJ McPhee helps you realign the flow of chi through a series of forms. Starting with opening the major energy gateway to allow chi to circulate. Then aligning the spine to encourage free flow of energy to revitalize your body. Ending with cleansing the body of stagnant chi and restoring it with pure chi .More than 30 years ago, my T'ai Chi instructor and classmates and I traveled from Chicago to Snowmass, CO for two weeks of T'ai Chi training that would last us a lifetime.

Carol McPhee does a wonderful elaboration of this simple exercise.
