When you have correct posture, your body efficiently resists gravity in the least stressful way on your physiological and structural systems. Posture is typically thought of as a static and statue-like position. How boring! In truth, posture is dynamic in nature, and managing it is a constant interplay between your moving body and the things you do with your body. Maintaining proper alignment while moving is a challenging balancing act.

In other words, activity is not pulling you out of good aligned posture— whether it’s walking, bending over to pick up the newspaper, lifting weights, running, cycling, or doing yoga.

    Good grief , hard to tell sometimes the difference between articles and sales pitches. Lots of people hawking their wares on this site with the trademarked brands , innovative ideas, experienced know all, free give aways, blahbity blahs etc. everybody’s an expert apparently.

    • Yup, this really looks more like an ad than a document… the title suggested something much more interesting…
      Plus, this is more a set of basic tips for how to stand erect (in which case a profile image would also be necessary) than something pertaining to all postures.
