Don’t curl. Start small an gradually go down by another half step. Focus on doing the exercise as described. I can only go from G down to E, sometimes E flat, any further and out pops C. The embouchure is the same when the C pops out as if I planned on playing C. While descending, I get the sensation of a relaxed opened throat. Remember shape also includes jaw and tongue position working together with aperture corners.
