Posture and Poise Tuesday 1 May 2018 - Week 1
So we were exploring posture and poise and by looking at the body from this point of view, we can aim and succeed in getting that beautiful elongated spine needed for that beautiful posture with poise.
Upon waking up clean your tongue, mouth and teeth and wash your face
2. Before taking any breakfast
Drink half a cup of warm water
3. At a time of the day that suits you
Whether it is first thing in the morning or mid afternoon or the evening sit and make yourself comfortable and breath 7 rounds of nice easy breathes. A round is made up of 1 in and 1 out breathe.
4. At a time of the day that suits you AFTER breathe work in 3 above
Stand straight, as still as you can, placing your arms along the side of your body. Keep your feet together and eyes open. Do this for 2 minutes.
5. Next repeat 4 above but this time with your eyes closed.
You will find that there is a marked difference between standing straight and still with your eyes open and with them closed. It is highly likely that you will wobble when you are trying to stand with your eyes closed. This demonstrates very clearly how we use our sight to stay balanced and upright!
Continue this practice each day gradually increasing the number of minutes you stand with your eyes open and then closed. You are aiming (or get close) to stand for 7 minutes with eyes open and 7 minutes with eyes closed by day 7.
