5. Rest with the front edge of your sit bones making contact with the chair. Relax your back, belly, and shoulders completely.
7. Repeat two or three times, but don’t try to hold the final posture. Keep practicing a few times a day until it feels comfortable and normal to relax sitting on your sit bones.
Learning to use your body in a new way takes time, so be patient with yourself. If you're having trouble sitting in a relaxed and upright way, you might want to schedule an Efficient Movement Training session to help you establish this new and healthy habit.
