Brocades best practice
The 8 brocades are always practiced facing one direction (usually north)
The reason why the starting and ending direction for tai chi and chi gong is north is because the energy of yin chi, female or water chi flows from a northerly direction and has an affect on the basic yuan chi or constitutional chi that accumulates throughout the body from the moment of conception. This chi we receive from our parents and is on a decline from the moment of birth. Taiji and chi gong are believed to slow and strengthen this yin chi energy to prolong youthfulness and life.
