You can find your natural
vertical by imagining your spine as a plumb weight. If thatís too hard to imagine, watch a 5 or 6 year old child as he/she stands and
walks. Children at that age are closer to the ground and havenít
yet learned any bad habits, like hunching or walking with their
eyes looking at their toes.
Stand in front of a full-length mirror
in your bare feet. Put your feet bout 2 feet apart and make sure
theyíre facing forward. Lift your chin. Loosen the tension from your
shoulders by lifting them up and letting them fall back in place.
Shake your arms to encourage a natural drop from your shoulders.
Try to stretch your body higher without moving your feet. Pull in
your hips. You should now look relaxed and natural.
