Even-out Your Weight Bearing

Even-out Your Weight Bearing to Stand  Your Ground

Notice your default sitting or standing posture. You have one.  It the most familiar way you hold your body. The way you stand to wait, sit at your desk, drive your car. Many of us have a habit of “kick-standing” onto one leg or sitting heavily upon one buttock. What is your habit?

Practice evening out your weight bearing in sitting and in standing. Distribute your weight by sensing how heavy each foot feels in standing, or each thigh and buttock feels when sitting.  Uneven weight bearing tips the foundation for the alignment of your spine.

Once you even yourself out, notice how breath moves through your torso.  Now return to your default position and compare the freedom of your breath.  Easeful breath; easeful nervous system.
