The Stable Inner Attitude

Yang Style Tai Chi generally applies the Stable sub-conscious state, expressed by the two elements of Sensing / Thinking where the expression can be
strong / direct
light / flexible
strong / flexible
light / direct

Although different terms are used, each of these expressions have been stated by one Tai Chi author or another as the attributes of Yang Style Tai Chi. And as one begins to understand Stable its application in Tai Chi becomes more apparent. Stable is, however, not the only Inner Attitude of Yang Style Tai Chi.
