Kung-Fu, or Tauist Medical Gymnastics, by John Dudgeon, , at sacred-texts.com
10.—The Lying Tiger springing at his Food.
Bending and stretching each leg alternately.
Raise up the head that the breast may stretch forward,
Flatten the back and let the loins be level as a flat smooth stone.
Equalize the in-and-out-going breath by the nose.
Let the tips of the fingers rest on the ground and raise the body.
To vanquish the dragon and reduce the tiger, i.e., the influence of the genii.
To learn to obtain a true body and so protect one's health. See No. 10.
