from Horse Stance, the transition of weight from one foot to the other which also highlights the turning of the hips. I then add the waist to raise the arm as in ‘Push the Ball’ (Shibashi), developing the movement further by moving feet and hands as in ‘Wave Hands in Clouds’ ; following momentum from feet to knee, to hip and waist, shoulder and arm, .. .
‘Rocking’ to establish a sense of being centered and shift the weight down, this is developed further by stepping forward and rocking. This exercise I also use to explore the turning of the hips in stepping forward and back in the Hand Form.
