Hello:

Accredited Ghost Stories (Google Book)
...and stood by that side of the bed where I lay - with my left hand over the side of the bed; for my head rested on that arm, and I determined not to alter the posture in which I was.

1. not to alter the posture in which I was.
2. not to alter the posture I was in.

I think #2 sounds more colloquial. #1 is correct and formal.

Am I correct? Thank you.

    I suspect that contemporary speakers, at least in the US, would find #1 awkward. But then we'd probably say "not to alter my posture."
