First and only step is to find legit instruction. Direct transmission is the only way. Not all IMA instructors advertise in the yellow pages of on the net. You may have to ask around, focus on tai chi, bagua or hsing-i. If you tell us where you are someone here may be able to point you in the direction of a qualified instructor.

Why would you be asking people in this Forum who are mostly Americans and Europeans living thousands of miles away when you can just go to the Geylang area where a lot of kung fu schools are found with many teaching the internal systems?

I agree, Zhan Zhuang (standing stake postures), although they look baring, are perhaps the best ways to do so.

Zhan Zhuang
Something that has been helping me lately is going from seated training, to standing, then movement. Get the subtleties with seated practice, the maintain the subtleties as you stand up, then as you are standing, get your posture and everything in order, then move on to movements. The more complicated/difficult the movements, the more of your weakness come to light. I've been repeating this process over and over and it becomes increasingly easier to 'tap' into the more subtle changes without needing to sit down and focus first. I'm still one of the worst practitioners here, IMO, but I thought I'd jump in on this one anyway.
