心向下。

正南方,顺势将右臂由西南方
转为南方。右手展开钩手并将
手掌转为面下,手指指向正南

  合太极 04
双腿由曲逐渐伸直站起,在
站起的过程中,稳定地将重
心由右腿移向左腿,直到两
腿平均负担体重为止。在此
过程中,仍须保持开胯,收
臀,鼓腰。
同步地,以双肩为中心,将
肘向俩侧回收,置于体侧,
左右前臂在同一水平高度上
斜着指向中间,手掌向下略
含下压之意。
  合太极 03
保持右膝,右胯的稳定,转动
腰胯,竖起上身,由前倾转为
中正。顺势右收左腿,使左、
右俩足平行指向南方间距大致
与肩同宽。
俩大腿平行,重心仍然在右腿
上。
在收腿的同时,以肩为中心右
转左臂,使左右双臂在与肩同
高处平行指向南方。
 合太极 05
双腿平均承担体重,继续站
起,同时以双肘为中心,下
收前臂,掌心含下压之意。
待全身自然站立时,双臂正
好自然直伸,双掌在两腿侧
前维持下压之势。
在正个过程中持续放松上
身,此时当有重心下沉到腰
胯,虚领顶劲,气向丹田汇
聚的感觉。
 合太极 06

待等全身达到松静状态,放
松双腕,手指松弛向下,自
然微弯轻贴大腿两侧。

整体回复预备状态。

                        The closing of the taiji form 01
Keep the right knee stable. Press the left sole against the
ground and stretch the left leg. Steadily push both hips to the
left. Following the movement of the hips, the torso is slanting
forward toward the right thigh. The weight center is falling on top
of the connecting line between the right hip and right heel.
While shifting the weight center, rotate the head and shift the
eyesight from southeast to southwest. The right arm is basically
kept still and moves toward southwest along with the slanting of
the torso.
With the right arm as axis, turn the downward hooking right hand
to the left. Keep the state of the left forearm unchanged. With
the left elbow as center, stretch and extend the left arm naturally
leading the palm to face down.
                      The closing of the taiji form 02
Keep the whole body stable and steady. Relax the right hip.
With the connecting line between the right hip and foot as axis,
turn the right knee and right foot from the southwest to the
south.
Turn the waist to the left (?) at the same time. Maintain the torso
to slant forward and turn it from facing southeast to south.
Follow through by turning the right arm from the southwest to
the south.
Open the hooking fingers of the right hand and turn the palm to
face down with fingers pointing to the south. Turn the head to
face south as well with eyes looking forward. Keep the left arm
basically still.
                     The closing of the taiji form 03
Keep the right knee and hip stable. Rotate the hip and waist.
Raise the torso up from slanting to upright. Follow through by
withdrawing the left leg to the right leading both feet in parallel
pointing to the south and with the same width apart as the
shoulders.

Keep both thighs parallel with the weight center still on the right
leg. While withdrawing  the left leg, with the shoulder as center,
turn the left arm to the right leading both arms to the same
height as the shoulders and in parallel pointing to the south.
                      The closing of the taiji form 04
Gradually straighten both legs and stand up. While standing
up, steadily shift the weight center from the right to the left till
both legs share the body weight equally. During this process,
still keep the hips opened, withdraw the buttock and round the
lower back.
                    The closing of the taiji form 05
Both feet share the body weight equally. Continue to stand up.  
With both elbows as center, withdraw both forearms downward
with both palms having the sense of pressing down. When the
whole body is standing up naturally, both arms are
straightened at the same time. Keep both palms pressing down
on the side of the legs.
Continue to keep the body relax during this whole process.
Feel the weight center falling to the area of the hips and waist.
Insubstantially raise the top of the head. Feel the internal
power is centering underneath the navel area.
                 The closing of the taiji form 06
Wait till the whole body is reaching a complete quiet state.
Relax both wrists. Release all fingers downward. Bend them
slightly and naturally till they touch the side of thighs. The
whole body is going back to the state of preparation as the
beginning of Taiji form.
