Standing on flat ground, push your weight onto your front foot -- not hugely, just the amount you'd do for normal riding. Concentrate on the feeling. Memorize it. Feel where your knee is, etc.
Then when you ride, for the first little while consciously try to get that stance and that feeling. Then keep correcting yourself when you find yourself out of proper stance.
I know this sounds like 'just do it' advice, but if the stance doesn't come naturally then you have to consciously practice it to internalize it. It eventually becomes automatic.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
