T'ai Chi class

A lot of time was spent on the sternum--just paying attention to the spine means that the front of the body isn't adequately involved.

In particular, the body needs to bend a little leading into moves and then straighten (without overdoing it--not arching the lower back) at the culmination of moves.

This is difficult, but it helps tremoundously.

We also worked on my not pushing/overextending when I do push hands--it's a pervasive problem. I'm not having as much fun shoving as I used to, but that just clarifies how compulsive it is.
