Optimal structure

With careful consideration, every form, drill and exercise can be considered with optimal structure in mind.
The key thing is not to interfere with what the body itself wants to do.
Becoming attuned to your body requires awareness, sensitivity and relaxation.

It is important to feel comfortable at all times, and never to force your body into performing any movement or shape that "doesn't feel right".

The head floats upward but there is no conscious 'doing'.
The spine must drape from the skull.
The groin and the hips are open and free.
The 6 balanced pairs are adhered to.
Hinging of the torso takes place at the hip, rather than the ribcage or lower back.
The knees are relaxed, not deeply bent.
