This hidden technique is based on a natural approach to Tai Chi Chuan. It does not require any wilful control or interruption to the autonomic functions of the body.
In fact, the key to this system of Tai Chi Chuan is transparently simple:

Tai Chi Chuan embodies Chinese culture, including the values of Chinese Kung Fu and learning, derived from the teaching of the sage Confucius. Its philosophy is that of the sage Lao-Tze, the master of the Way; the Tao. You become one with Nature when your inner world reaches harmony.

Snug in the cold, cool when it’s hot. Your body becomes more adapted to the weather. Beyond removing unhealthiness, Tai-Chi makes you super healthy. With mystic awareness, you become enchanted by reality. By-the-by, you may eventually realize it as the martial art of the ultimate.

You can live a life beyond the grasp of ordinary mortals.
