T'ai Chi is an "internal" Chinese martial art and is applied with complete relaxation or softness in the muscles as possible. It involves relaxed breathing and slow natural range of motion for training the sensitivity in the reflexes in order to learn leverage, timing, coordination and positioning.


Goyararu Tai Chi has many techniques related to Chinese Tai Chi with the main ideas and concepts of movements being guided by a consciousness, a unity of stillness and motion, correct attitude and poise with the mind free from distractions.

Relaxation and proper coordinated breathing is vital for everyday life and the correct execution of everything we do, from Martial Arts, gymnastics, running and walking, to standing, sitting, resting and sleeping. Goyararu Tai Chi have movements that are energetic, others soft, some rapid others slow, one move followed by another in uninterrupted, rhythmic harmony, like a flowing stream.


Relaxation is defined as `a state of living in which the physical and mental activities of the body are slowed down to the minimum level  possible.`

The pace of modern day living is such that it places great demands upon energy resources of the body. This constant demand if unchecked can eventually lead to nervous illnesses, constant fatigue, loss of vitality and a host of other such troubles.

Goyararu training will eventually enable you to rid your body of all conscious tensions, which are the root cause of most energy draining factors, by concentrating on the unnecessary tensions of various muscles hindering rest and correct movement: this can only be observed when control over these tensions, (i.e. relaxation), is achieved.


If we consider the attitude of Tai Chi as being yielding, flowing, passive and relaxing(Yin),  then Sena Dasi is the other end of the scale and viewed to be blinkered, inflexible, merciless and lacking in compromise.(yang)

Sena Dasi is a state of mind, terrible, very personal and powerful that’s treacherous and difficult to overcome, concealing the true consequences and shame of your actions. It remains hidden in your every task, prowling and waiting to devour and destroy anything that lies in its path or threatens its very existence. If it`s ignored and not confronted it will justify every action, with no other point of view taken into account, it becomes stronger and stronger and without question misguides you throughout life.

Understanding Sena Dasi gives the practitioner a balanced training method with Tai Chi. (Yin & Yang) and is the fundamental foundation stone of philosophy within the Art of Goyararu.

Warning: Practicing Sena Dasi incorrectly without proper supervision is dangerous and can cause not only physical but intellectual and emotional damage.
