Here is an example-series of upper-body patterns combined with stances and transitions. Practice alternating side-to-side, stepping forward & back. Connect the strength and flow of breath with movement. Hold each position for one or more breaths between transitions to strengthen alignment and stability. Recombine poses and stances to invent or improvise your own series.
