We ask that you take posture photos of yourself prior to completing any work in this course. It will serve as an important baseline, and you will have the opportunity to review this once more at the end. Refer to the notes below on how to best capture the photos. Please upload your photos below with the title “Last Name, First Name – Posture Photo __ 

Posture Photos:

  • Make sure you are barefoot and wearing clothes that aren’t too baggy or cumbersome
  • Use a flat/blank wall behind you, ideally, something that is white and that has good lighting
  • Please take the photos horizontally. Make sure that your whole body is showing with about an inch of background space between you and the frame of the shot
  • Recommended setup for each photo is to march in place with your eyes closed for about 10 seconds. This will allow your body to “reset” and fall into place naturally. We want your posture to be as natural as possible (e.g., please limit active mindfulness of Essentials, etc.)
  • You will take 4 photos in total: one facing towards the camera, 2 shots of either side, and one facing away from the camera
