Nei Gong Notes, May 2, 2023

May 02 2023

Pretty mellow week. I had to work on Wednesday because of the trip, so I didn’t do extra Nei Gong practice that day; and on Friday I did do a day off length practice but nothing special there either. And then I came down with a stomach bug on Sunday, so I didn’t practice on Sunday and Monday. (I’m feeling fine now, though.)

On Saturday I told folks that I was planning to offer a Silk Reeling course; no uptake yet, so I don’t know if it will actually happen or not. And it was good to practice push hands, doing the three- and five-step routines that I’d learned for the first time in the workshop a few weeks earlier.

One pleasant thing that’s happened: I can touch my toes now. I’d been trying to do that when my Apple Watch tells me to stand up, but I hadn’t been doing it reliably; I’d been doing it more reliably recently, though, and I’d also been relaxing my hips and back more to try to get more of a curve here. So it’s good that that’s all worked, and actually the hip and back part feels like it’s made more of a difference. And, when I do that, the position of the most tension on my leg muscles changes a bit, not sure what to make of that. Hopefully if I can keep on doing this then it will help me open up my back.
