Fang Song is 放鬆

: let go
: loose

放鬆: let loose; relax; relaxation

I believe it was advice to be relaxed, at all times, at the beginning of every move in Tai Ji Quan. Soft at first then become hard at the end which is the basic principle of yin-yang. The yin is always prior the yang.

Is Fang Song 放鬆 a method? I believe that Tai Ji is a method and Fang Song is just a procedural step has to be taken in the practice.
A deep discussion requires explicit details for a good comprehension of a complex subject.
