If you are nervous during public speaking, just strike a Tai Chi pose, said Leo Nosky, a professional public speaker. Public speaking is one of the scariest things to do for many people, and it’s a fear that’s hard to over come.

A quick learner, Nosky got the tip from Master Hong Yijiao before he started his presentation at the Seattle Chinese Chamber of Commerce lunch last Friday. Ironically, Master Yijiao was there to learn from his public speaking techniques. I guess a master can always learn from their students.

How does Tai Chi calm down your nerves?

Stand in a Tai Chi pose, hands down, knees bent slightly, relax, and breathe long and deep.

You’ll be more relaxed in no time. (end)
