muscular systems and movements

In the Chinese systems one understands, and experiences, the muscles as interconnected bands, rather than individual anatomical tissues which ´push and pull`.
They are long, comprehensive interwoven sheaths of movement. Chinese perception is one of function, rather than form; and remember that ´mind creates the world` – that which you hold in your consciousness will be both experience and formation of your body.
As you learn to move with bands of movement, rather than muscles, you body will actually take on a different form; you will have a different experience of movement and being in your body.
