The Basic Rock

Stand with your feet about 10.5 inches apart. The left foot is pointing straight ahead. The right foot is at a forty-five-degree angle. The left foot is about five or six inches in front of the right, so that the toes of the right are on a straight line with the left instep (fig. 57). Bend both knees until, as you look down, the front knee is directly over the toes, hiding them from view. Now lean slightly forward, letting the hands slide down the front of the thighs until your fingertips are almost touching the top of the kneecap. The body is in a stooped-over posture. Do not slouch the shoulders or bow the upper back. Rather, bend from the waist. This allows you to maintain a straight line from tailbone to crown. This is the Taiji Ruler Stance (fig. 58) and is the foundation of The Basic Rock and The Basic Ruler, which follow.
