Double swaying lotus 01
Keep the center stable. Raise the right heel slightly up and let the weight center falling on
the front sole of the right foot. Using the internal power from the hip and waist and with the
connecting line between the right hip and the right sole as axis, steadily rotate the whole
body from southwest to northwest.
Turn the torso from upright to slanting forward. Relax the left hip. Bend the left thigh
naturally and sink down in a position in between the above posture and posture of (02).
Pay attention that the natural slanting of the upper body should not affect the stability of the
weight center. While rotate the body, stretch forwards the right arm slightly. The right palm is
basically facing down with fingers pointing forward toward the direction of the forearm.
Keep the left palm in hook form. With the left shoulder as center, raise the left elbow up
toward the left side. Place the left hand under the left side ribs. Pay attention not to shrug
Double swaying lotus 02
Keep the weight center stable. Ground with the right heel with the sole pointing to the
northwest side. Turning back to the upright position. Stretch the left leg and ground the left
heel with toe tips pointing upward.
The whole body is facing northwest establishing the typical upright position. Rotate the left
shoulder and elbow. Slowly open the hooked hand. Turn the wrist toward the back of the
palm leading the palm to face down. Move the hand from the rib side to the front of the
chest at the same height as the shoulder. Withdraw and move down the right palm at the
same time. Position the fingers under the left wrist.
This is also a transitional step preparing for the forward pushing. The position of both arms
as mentioned above is a rough reference. The actual position will depend on one’s own
Double swaying lotus 03
Follow the similar basic requirements in moving from the upright to the slanting state.
The left palm is at the same height as the face while the right palm is at the same height as
the upper abdomen. Following the shift of the weight center forward, push forward slightly
and coordinately similar to the Side-face Palm as previous mentioned.
Double swaying lotus 04
Keep the left hip and heel stable. With the connecting line between the left hip and left foot
as axis, steadily rotate the left hip backward leading the torso from slanting and facing
northwest to upright and facing northeast.
Keep the left leg in stretching state with the toe tips of both feet facing each other.
Keep the right arm at its original state. While rotating the body, use the right shoulder as
center and raise the right arm upward leading the upper right arm close to the height of
the right shoulder and to point west. At this moment, the right palm is basically facing
The left arm is also kept basically at its original state. While rotating the body at the same
time, with the left shoulder as center drop the left arm down leading the left palm to face
northwest and in concert with the right palm right in front of the chest.
Double swaying lotus 05
Keep the left hip and knee stable. Continue to rotate the body steadily leading the
torso from facing southeast to facing east (slightly toward southeast).
Relax the right hip and bind the right leg. Raise the right heel slightly. With the right
toe tips as center, turn the sole and thigh to point east at the same time.
The form of both arms is basically unchanged. They follow the turn of the body to
move. When making the rotation, with both shoulders as center shift the body from
the original height to the right
Double swaying lotus 06
Keep the body upright and the weight center stable. Relax the right hip. With the
internal power from the leg and waist, raise the leg from the left side and sway to the
right along the path as shown by the yellow dots in the picture. When the right toe
tips are crossing in front of the chest, they will touch respectively the left and right
hand. The toe tips are pointing upward similar to leg kicking.
Pay attention to the sense of kicking the hand with the leg and not to bow down the
torso for the sake of touching the legs with the hand. It is not essential for the hands
to reach the leg. Instead it is importance to keep the weight center of the whole
body stable and sustainable.
With both shoulders as center, stretch both arms leading the left and right palms to
move along the path as shown by the yellow dots in the picture and meet with the
right leg in front of the chest.
Double swaying lotus 07
Following the movement of kicking, with the spine as center rotate both hips to the
left leading the torso from facing east to facing northeast. Along the path of the
yellow dots, continue to sway the right leg to the right till it stretches forward and to
ground with the right heel.
With both arms as center and following the rotation of the body, continue to sway
both hands at the same horizontal direction to the left. Stretch the left arm naturally
and position the right arm across the front of the upper abdomen. Both hands are
basically at the same height and located close to the upper body along the
connecting line between northwest and southeast.
