Shùn and Nì Chán Sī Jìn 順與逆纏絲勁 – Part 6
The fifth Shùn and Nì Chán Sī Jìn 順與逆纏絲勁 exercise is sideways. First make the wide, middle horse stance position as in the other exercises and keep the back straight. Place the hands at the Dantian with the palms facing down. Turn the upper body to the right side and raise both hands up along the Ren Mai – allow the palms to gradually turn outwards as you raise the hands in Shun Chan Si. Continue to circle the left hand down in front and the right hand down behind. The circles go from inside to outside. When both hands start to come down, begin to turn the body to the front and lower the hands down to meet up at the Dantian with the palms facing down. When the hands are at the Dantian the body is facing the front. Now repeat on the left side. Turn to the left and this time the right hand at the front and the left hand at the back, with the palms facing outwards. Once the left side is finished continue to the right, repeating many times. When the hands rise up and we turn to the side, we breathe in, and when both hands drop down we breathe out.
While we are circling both hands, our waist, knees and ankles are also moving, however the waist and the knees just move and twist to the left and right with the in and out movement. At the same time when our hands are rising up our bodies also rise up little bit, when our hands dropping down our bodies also sink down little bit, body up we will breathe in, body down we breathe out, all synchronise together.
