  • Open the Door of Life
  • Open the Spinal Vertebrae-Front, Back, and Sideways
  • Open the Hips and Sacrum/Coccyx
  • Open All the Joints of the Body-so Chi can get in
  • Stretch the Tendons-"Find the Straight in the Curve"
  • Crane Neck and Turtle Neck-activating the Cranial Pump
  • Empty Force Breath: This involves rolling the abdominal organs and drawing the diaphragm up in to the rib cage while holding the breath out.
