The Wise Way to Be in Your Body for effortless good posture has nothing to do with positioning your body in the assumed “correct posture”. It is not about the activities you do or do not do.
Rather, it has to do with “how you use your body” whatever you may be doing. It is about functioning in an integrated way which naturally results in ease of movement, natural good posture, good coordination and balance. It is about responding to life rather than reacting to it. In short, it has to do with living your life with trust, joy and wellbeing.
When you learn to activate your whole-body intelligence, you can reclaim the ease in your movements, the poise in your posture and you experience positive changes in how you behave. It is not about perfection but right intention in action.
It creates expanded awareness and new possibilities in all aspects of your life.
