    The best Tai Chi masters in the world train numerous Song Gong, Nei Gong, Body Opening, and Stretching Exercises to develop the physical attributes required for Song. These exercises are designed to open up the body and cultivate a deeper awareness of your body’s movements. They are an integral part of the process.

    So, while it’s natural to want quick results without putting in the effort, it’s important to understand that in Tai Chi, as in many other disciplines, there is no shortcut. Consistent practice, including physical exercises, will be essential for you to progress and eventually achieve a state of Song.

    It’s like wanting to become a millionaire but being unwilling to work or invest; you can have the desire, but without the necessary effort and action, it’s unlikely to happen. You need to put in the hard work to understand and achieve results in the internal arts!
