Repeating movements helps to cultivate memory and feel qi

I find value in repeating the same movements over and over with my students with the intention of helping them to grow more aware of what the moves have to offer them in tai chi terms. For example, “qi go through” is a term Master Xu uses often to refer to the flow of energy through the body. Another example would be spiraling through to take the idea of qi flowing a little further. Qi can pour through the body like water from above, straight down, freely without constraint. Or it can spiral in evermore sophisticated patterns through the body and even more deeply all the way to the bone washing them with life giving energy.
