Start by standing with your feet hip-width apart, distributing your weight evenly. Engage your leg muscles and press your feet firmly into the ground, creating a stable foundation for your posture.
Imagine a string drawing the crown of your head upward, lengthening your spine. Avoid collapsing or rounding your shoulders, keeping them relaxed and aligned with your hips.
Activate your abdominal muscles by gently drawing your belly button towards your spine. This provides stability and supports your spine during different yoga poses.
Roll your shoulders back and down, opening your chest and allowing for better breathing. Avoid hunching forward, which can restrict the flow of energy and compromise your posture.
Release tension in your neck and jaw by allowing your chin to rest parallel to the floor. Avoid excessive tension or strain by maintaining a relaxed and neutral position.
Maintain a soft and relaxed gaze, directing your eyes slightly downward or towards a focal point. This helps you maintain balance and inner focus, enhancing your overall posture.
In standing poses, ensure your hips are level and squared towards the front. Avoid tilting or dropping one hip, which can create imbalances and affect your posture.
Draw your shoulder blades towards each other, creating a broad, open sensation across your chest. Avoid overly rounded or shrugged shoulders, maintaining a balanced and supported posture.
Find a neutral position for your pelvis, neither tilting forward nor backwards. This aligns your spine properly and prevents strain on the lower back.
Allow your breath to flow naturally and deeply, relaxing your body and mind. Tension and stress can negatively affect your posture, so focus on cultivating a sense of calmness.
