Tai Chi - (Movement 1a Illustration)
TEXT INSTRUCTIONS
FOR MOVEMENT #1

Tai Chi - (Lesson 1b Illustration)

15-1b: As the palms pull back over the sphere, ending up in front of your chest as though you were going to push something away, the weight shifts back to the right foot, sinking the Qi, or filling the right foot, as palms drop to sides of hips.

Tai Chi - (Movement 1c Illustration) 15-1c: From palms down position, palms pull out and behind a bit to rotate out the shoulders. As empty left foot comes out in front, place left heel lightly on the ground. Continue circling arms around in front of body as if hugging a large tree, and left heel touches just as your palms meet. The left palm is lateral as in the sketch, while right palm is vertical. Although the movement is called Strike Palm, the palms don't actually strike; pretend there is a soft energy sphere the size of a honeydew melon between your relaxed, rounded hands.
