Lesson 5 – White Crane Spreads its Wings
White Crane Spreads it’s Wings is sometimes called “Stork Cools its Wings” or “White Goose Spreads its Wings” or “Bigbird Waves Goodbye to Mr. Hooper.”
This is the introduction to the empty stance with the empty foot on the toe.
It also involves counter twisting of the waist. This should be done carefully so as not to twist the knee.
