How to Perform the Pushing Millstone Palm

The last Standing Palm posture is the main posture for Baguazhang practice, and you can add it as a fifth posture for your standing practice.

Assume the left Universal Post Posture on the edge of the circle facing in the counterclockwise direction. Drop the heel of the left foot and place your hands into the Trinity Posture positions. Then turn your upper body so the forefinger of the left hand aligns with the center of the circle.

The right hand will move naturally to the left as you turn. Bend the elbow of the right arm and stand the right hand up so that the fingers are under the left elbow.

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

Hurdler’s Stretch

This is one of my favorite stretches. Start on your hands and knees as in the Bridge, but put the left foot in front of the right knee, with the heel touching the knee.

Standing Meditation

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.

Horse Posture

Traditional martial arts teach a low and wide stance called Ma Bu. My version of this stance develops leg strength without having to stand around all day.
