7 ways to re-think posture

Using posture as a way to find freedom in movement and enhanced capacity for breath🤩

Watch: 3:45min


Here’s the crib notes version:

1. Let go of searching for a position or an external image of what posture ‘should’ look like


2. We can think of posture as an internal state of mind, an attitude that radiates out


3. There’s no one-size-fits-all that ‘works’, we each have our unique fingerprint


4. Pulling your shoulders back & down narrows your back and decreases breath capacity. Allow your shoulders to have their width


5. Tucking the chin may compress throat & vocal freedom, and create more tension in back of neck


6. Locking the knees makes it difficult to connect into the ground, and the leg muscles have to work extra hard in standing


7. Sucking in your core will not set you free ;)

I love this permission to let go into gravity! I often find myself either slouching/collapsing or tucking/holding rigidly upright to project confidence, both of which cause me excess tension.
