Key Points to a Functional Wuji Posture

Stand up, put your hands at your sides and examine yourself. Is one toe pointing out or one shoulder higher than the other? Does one palm face the front and the other face your side? Your standing posture reflects the disfunction years of inattentiveness has caused. It is time to pay attention to your standing posture, know how your body is functioning today, and take responsibility to create a new milestone for yourself and your ability to stand on your own two feet.

Functional Wuji Posture

The best way I have found to assume a functional Wuji Posture is to stand with my heels together and feet pointing out so that there is a 90-degree angle between them. Once you have this position, turn on your little toes, causing the heels to separate from each other and come to rest under your hips. You should have your feet under your hips; they should be hip width apart. The big toe of each foot should point forward or slightly in.
