Stand on a firm floor, barefoot or in socks, feet shoulder width apart. Press evenly on the ball, outside edge, and heel.
Soften your knees and align them above your feet.
Tilt your pelvis and get the curves of your back comfortable.
Let your shoulders hang back and and your elbows hang down. Elbows soft, palms soft and turned somewhat forward.
Feel the line of your weight from your head to your shoulders to your pelvis to your feet.
Focus neither inward nor outward. Eyes open looking ahead at nothing. Be still and listen without words.
