Back Kick

Sitting disassociates the connection between the legs and the torso. The Back Kick is a powerful reminder that our legs need the torso to function well.

Back Kick

Lie on your stomach, as in The Turtle or Butterfly exercises. You should follow the Wuji Posture alignments. Turn your face to the left by putting your right cheek and ear against the floor. Bend the knee of the left leg so the bottom of the left foot is facing the ceiling.

Take a deep breath and breathe out as you push the left foot toward the ceiling by lifting the left thigh off the floor. The right side should remain relaxed while the left side is trying to hold the foot in the air. Hold this position for one minute, before slowly lowering the thigh back to the floor.

When your thigh is flat against floor, straighten the leg and recover for a few breaths before you perform the exercise on the other side. Turn your face to the right, putting your left ear against the floor, then raise your right foot so the sole is facing the ceiling.

This exercise stresses the link between the foot section and the head section of the Trinity Posture. It reminds you that the performance of your torso and your legs are linked, and that power flows through the legs and into the torso before we express it in the hands.

Thank you for recognizing my creative efforts. I moderate all comments and will not tolerate nonsense.

Standing

While standing in Wuji Posture, your mind will probably fit the formless chaos definition of wuji; racing from thought to thought, but your body will be still; standing upright without moving. You want to stand until your mind is aware of your body, and clear from other thoughts.

Push Ups

No exercise engages the scapula, quite like the push up. For strengthening the arms, shoulders, and body core, nothing beats this traditional exercise. The push up also engages the serratus anterior muscle along your rib cage, the same muscle targeted in traditional standing postures with extende...
