To be successful with tai chi you need to stay motivated to practice. Author Henry Zhuang will show you how to change it from a mere act of doing tai chi to a long-term sustainable exercise that inspires pure joy in your heart. Knowing what this means and how to do it are important for maintaining tai chi as the most rewarding and enjoyable experience in your life, day after day, year after year. What if I already practice tai chi? If you already practice tai chi, you may need a boost to help you stay on track, or help you over a block in your progress. Simply doing the act (aerobics) is not enough. You must find ways to constantly advance your mindset and your physical body. Knowing what this means and how to do it are important tools for keeping tai chi the most rewarding and enjoyable experience in your life, day after day, year after year.
In The Mind Inside Tai Chi: Sustaining a Joyful Heart, Henry Zhuang provides an overview of taijiquan (also known as tai chi); the Chinese martial art often practiced more for its perceived health benefits than its defensive value . . . The most useful portion of the book is one near the end, in which the author includes photographs that demonstrate various taijiquan techniques and movements. This not only provides a needed visual representation of what is a physical activity, but also makes the concepts feel more practical than do the earlier, more textbook-like parts of the book.--Jeff Fleischer "Foreword Reviews "of dormant oxonium ions that react with accessible and reactive macromolecular ends resulting from mechanical damage. Precisely controlled stoichiometry of the individual components giving pH = 6.8 induce cationic OXE ring opening as well as polyurea-to-polyurethane (PUA-to-PUR) conversions driven by a free radical process. This is accompanied by chair-to-boat conformational changes of glycosine units of CHI moieties. These orchestrated events trigger intra- and intermolecular crosslinking reactions resulting in self-repair via –C–O–C– bond formation. Deviations towards higher acidity will have adverse effects, and instead of repair, expansion of the scratch will occur. Upon mechanical damage, the glass transition temperature (T (Source: pubs.rsc.org)
(DBTDL), inside the scratch of the OXE-CHI-PUR damaged network is determined using chemical and thermo-mechanical imaging probes. These studies show that the presence of controlled acidic environments determines whether self-healing will occur or not. The network remodeling during UV initiated repair involves (Source: pubs.rsc.org)
