How do you activate the Silent Xia Sheng stance?

I've been trying to activate the SXS. According to some sites you have to press back and then hold A and I have done so repeatedly many times but Xianghua just does a move and I don't see any change in her stance. All the sites that I've been to only state the moves to do after activating the Silent Xia Sheng but don't tell how to activate the stance. While this site says to activate Silent Xia Sheng you have to press B & K (Hold) (While soul charged) https://www.ign.com/wikis/soulcalibur-6/Xianghua

There are 3 levels of SXS:
SXS1 - "earth"
SXS2 - "heaven"
SXS3 - "blue glow / buffed / omg GC time"

There are hidden 'stocks' that allow you to go to each version.
0-2 Stocks = Earth (SXS1)
3-4 Stocks = Heaven (SXS2)
5-8 Stocks = Buffed (SXS3)

You build one stock by either:
a) entering SXS stance
b) using the taunt while in SXS stance.

Note: 8 stocks is the maximum. If you try to build another stock but have already accumulated 8 stocks, you will stay at 8.

While in SXS:Earth aka SXS1
1. A - Free - High, 20 dmg
2. B - Free - Mid, 40 dmg
3. K - Free - Mid, 18 dmg
4. K+G - Gains one stock.

While in SXS:Heaven aka SXS2
1. A - Free - Same as SXS:Earth
2. B - Free - Same as SXS:Earth
3. K - Free - Same as SXS:Earth
4. A+G_B+G - Costs 3 stocks - High Throw, 40 damage
5. K+G - Gains one stock.

While in SXS:Buffed aka SXS3
*If you flash blue upon entering SXS, you have 5 or more stocks.
1. A(Buffed) - Costs 3 stocks - Adds crumple stun on hit, follow with 3B.
2. B(Buffed) - Costs 3 stocks - Adds GC property, follow with 3B (GI-able)
3. K(Buffed) - Costs 3 stocks - Adds crumple stun on hit, follow with low-grab.
4. A+G_B+G - Costs 3 stocks - Same as SXS:Heaven
5. K+G - Gains one stock.

Other Important Notes:

-If you are hit while in SXS, you will still gain a stock.
-If you are hit while in middle of a SXS taunt, you will not gain a stock. You'll only gain a stock if and only if your taunt completes.
-Whether your attack hits, whiffs, is blocked, interrupted, or throw-escaped, if you started an attack that costs three stocks, you will lose them.
-Time does not cause you to lose stocks. You keep them until you spend them.
-You carry your current number of stocks into the following round.
-You can build stocks after you've KO'd or RO'd your opponent. The quickest way is [A+K], potentially adding 3 stocks.

I think I kinda understand a little about the Silent Xia Sheng stance now. You must first enter the stance by pressing back+A and then hold A and if Xianghua kneels and crosses her legs(like in the photo I attached) that means the stance has already been activated right? And then just right after she enters that stance I found out that I could activate Waterfall (B) and Windchime (A+G). But after that she returns to normal stance. Am I right? Or must Silent Xia Sheng be turned off by hitting back+A again?

Yep, I've been doing the same thing, not sure if there's another way for her to activate waterfall etc. without doing that stance.
