Walking Pass

It is a part of a much longer movement, and was described as a preparatory pass. This was the same pass involving the feet being placed perpendicularly about one and a half feet apart (with the heel of one foot lining up with the arch of the other foot), and the entire weight of the body being alternated between the two feet, first for a count of 20 on each foot, then changing the position of the feet for another count of 20, and then going back and forth placing the weight on each foot for a count of 20. The third part of this pass is called Fluidity Foot, and involves standing on the left foot and bending the right foot straight up from the floor and then bending it inward to the left. You are to feel the resulting tightness in the thigh flowing up the body and hold for a count of 10. You then do the same thing standing on the right foot and bending the left foot.

The Sphinx Breath

involves inhaling and bringing both bent arms back as far as they will go, and then exhaling while looking at a point from which you can see with your peripheral vision as your arms with flat palms pointed downward extend out as the Sphinx's paws.

Belly Breath

is difficult to describe but involves making the belly huge as you push the breath out.

The Right-to-Left-Lung Breath

starts with both arms pointed down to the right of your torso with the right palm facing out, then swinging both arms all the way around on the right side of the body so that they are extended above your head with both palms facing out. From there both arms swing down your left side ending with both palms pointed down to your left side with the left palm facing out and the right palm facing in. Then you flip both hands back to the starting position on your right side and perform the entire movement again. The theory is that you are breathing a bit more in with your right lung in the first half, and then with your left lung in the second half of the movement, although obviously both sides of your lung are taking in airM
