So after reading the syllabus, which I should get in a habit of doing, I see that the blog has to at least 250 words and I can write about my experience in and out of class.
The one thing I did take from the first day of practice it the correct way to stand and I have been correcting my stance ever since. It felt really foreign at first but now I don’t have to correct myself as much. I noticed that I slouch…a lot. I slouch when I am sitting, walking, and standing so my main focus is to make spine straight and open my chest cavity. At first and even now I laugh at myself because it seems like I am poking my breast out (and I am but not for the reason that people usually do). I also push down on my lower back, trying to make my butt flesh go down but I still don’t know that it is working. Pretty soon at least hopefully pretty soon I will do actual poses but for now correcting my stance and straightening my spine seems good.
