Here we go again…today in the Zhan Zhuang training course we will be adding on to everything we have learned before.
For the warm ups you learned posture 1 in the Baduanjin system which is called “two hands hold up the heavens” and today you will keep doing posture one but now add posture two which is called “Drawing the bow to shoot the hawk”.
On day 4 you will be going into further depth with the “standing like a tree” posture and Zhan Zhuang itself.
You then finish day 4 with the cool down execrsises you have been doing for the last few days.
Here is the tips from the video:
• Each position is a progression from the last, so work up to about 20 minutes in each posture before moving onto the next.
• Make sure to warm up before, and relax after, each exercise.
• When your stamina has improved, try standing for 5 minutes each in all 5 positions. It’s hard work, so please be patient and do stop if you feel faint or too hot!
