Stand tall with your feet hip-width apart and parallel. Press down evenly through the entire surface of each foot, engaging the muscles of your legs without locking your knees. Press your palms together at the center of the chest in a prayer position. Balance your body weight between your right and left legs, then between the heels and toes of each foot. Elongate your spine by lifting out of your waist and tucking your chin slightly, extending through the crown of your head. Bring yourself into the present: Breathe, relax, feel, watch, and allow. Affirm an intention to remain present in your body as you practice.
