Tai Chi: Step Back to Drive Monkeys Away - part of the women's fitness video series by GeoBeats. Hello, my name is Tiffany Chen, I am from William C. C. Chen's Tai Chi Chuan, and I am going to do Step Back to Drive Monkeys Away with you. Turn to the left. Left leg in front, right leg behind. We start with the weight in the right leg, on the heel of the left foot. Right hand in a fist, left arm bent at the elbow and just over the fist. We are going to turn to the right, extending the left arm out and reaching behind with the right hand and opening up the palm. So, I am going to begin the movement, turning to the right, extending the left arm, and extending the right arm, opening up the fist. Now, I turn back to the left. The left palm turns over, the right palm comes over on top. You are going to step straight back with the left leg. Shift now all the way into the left leg, sinking down, and now turning in the right foot on the heel and changing the palms. This completes the segment.
