Greetings All,


I have been following this forum for a few years now, and I have finally decided to become a member. I first came across this place when it kept popping up on my various past Google searches. Since then, I found it to be a valuable source of information and wisdom. I feel like I may contribute a little, too, going forward.


A little about myself... I have developed an interest in the internal arts when I was a teenager (I am 36 now) mainly under the influence of a family member. However, I began doing some dedicated work in this area only a few years ago when I started attending yoga classes after I hit the bottom emotionally and physically. I kept going to the classes for two and a half years. In the mean time, I was drawn strongly towards Qigong and Neigong. My current practice includes an hour of yoga per week performed at home, five minutes of zhan zhuang every morning, some kind of MCO stimulating meditation whenever I feel like it, along with rigorous physical exercises (push ups, pull ups, crunches, weight lifting, running etc). I try to eat well and I enjoy fasting. I do a 24 - hour water fast at least once every week and do intermittent fasting pretty much every day. I strive to stay physically strong and cultivate more energy and internal calmness as time progresses.
