How to Perform the Lowering Palm Posture

Start in Wuji Posture facing in the counterclockwise direction on your circle. Raise your hands to the height of your belly button with the palms facing down. Remember the lessons from Holding the Moon Posture in your standing exercise. The shoulders and elbows need to have that sinking feeling, without rolling forward and down. There will be a gap between your outstretched fingers that should correspond to the center line of your body.

Turn toward the center of the circle with your torso, but keep your hands in front of you. You can imagine that you are holding a ball under water with your palms as you walk.

The Bellows

Breathing in is Yin, breathing out is Yang. When performing the martial forms, we associate breathing in with defensive movements, while we associate breathing out with offensive movements. In The Bellows, we coordinate breathing with movement while exercising the spine, shoulders, and hips.
