Wait, that's what I was told to do
When I started studying Chen taiji I did a private lesson with my teacher and he asked what I wanted to work on. I said peng jin and he said "let's stand". After three years of standing my teacher pointed out that my dantian was full. I continued to stand, but started to work on silk reeling as well. I'm too embarrassed to say how long I trained before I started to really understand neijin.
Just curious, how would you qualify this understanding .What does it allow you to do that you could not do before with out it.
Could you post one example of something you can do now that you could not do before using any other type of method.
