7-Day Challenge

I was recently tagged on Facebook in a 7 Day Challenge: "1 Taijiquan posture a day for 7 days in the nature. Picture must be uploaded without filter publicly on your own timeline nominating at least one of your friends. The idea is to make more and more people realize that the beauty of this internal art is to set us in harmony with the external or what surround us. Nature and Taiji are one. From this we may cultivate a deeper individual link with Nature." This challenge was initiated by Melody Lee. You can see all of the posts / photos on social media with the hashtag #taijimelody. Here's my set of photos:
