I would like to see what others think about the spinal/torso bow. I notice that when I sink and bow my energy feels extremely stable and about to spring. This type of movement is considered gathering. As the spine extends the energy travels up and out the arms(issuing). This process from gathering to issuing also feels like a continuous process - almost like an internal figure 8. I find that the feeling of the bow is present in every movement - lending a sense of rootedness and springy energy as well as controlled momentum.
Any thoughts on this from contributors?
