Follow your eyes

Sit on your behind and more to the squat. Walk the movement back in your head and note if there was any freedom in the way your eyes were fixed or aligned to the actual or personal horizon.
Now relax back to sitting and repeat the drill moving first your breath and than your relaxed gaze and let the body follow. In a short while you will find that it is far easier to allow the body to glide from one tension point to another with much less resistance than the linear movement your fixed eyes force on you.
Now that you can breathe and glide your way from sitting to squatting progress to doing the same from squatting to standing by avoiding fixing your eyes and letting them guide you to the path of least resistance. A video will follow to demonstrate this.
