Movement 4 – Pull

Video Tai Chi 8 Movements – Posture 4 – Pull

Instruction Tai Chi 8 Movements – Posture 4 –  Pull

1.Using solely the hip joint, turn the torso slightly to the right; as a consequence, the hands point into the diagonal.

2. Shift your weight to the left. First 50/50, then continue shifting. Simultaneously, the left hand sinks in front of the right groin, the right hand rises a bit. Releasing/letting go: the hands rotate slightly outwards, led by the pinky fingers; the torso turns slightly to the right side.

3. Activating: Straightening up, both hands pull downwards and outwards in a bow – the space between arms and upper body increases while doing so. Both palms rotate and point upwards and the end. Gaze and hip face into the diagonal direction.
