After pushing forward with the left hand and the legs in gong bu, the bend in the front leg is kept i.e. don’t straighten up at the end of the move.
I have noticed that my knees are tending to collapse inwards slightly in ping xing bu when my legs are bent (as at the end of this move), it is only slight, not really noticeable in the video, but the stance is much stronger when I am aware and keep my knees in line with ankles and shoulders.
After the lean to the left, try straightening the body with just a move of the left arm (keep the right hand / arm) where it is. Once the body is vertical, then move the right hand and right foot in a small circle together.
