Posture

Our postural system is a miracle of balance and coordination. It relies on an efficient nervous system and on different muscle groups working together to achieve the easy strength and flexibility which are essential to what we commonly refer to as “posture”.

The very word “posture” is itself something of a problem. It is usually thought of as a fixed position, “the way I hold myself”. This is unhelpful because fixing and holding are actually part of the problem.

It is more helpful to understand it this way: posture is process, rather than position. Posture is a dynamic and free-flowing system which responds to our changing needs.
