AUGUST 22 session: Learn proper spinal alignment for easy, natural, therefore powerful walking. Good posture comes not from muscular effort but from the optimal use of the skeleton. Good posture makes you look and feel healthy, poised and potent. The Maasai tribe in Africa is known for its elegant, long, erect posture. They can walk for many miles without tiring, keeping their ease and bounce. The beauty of the posture is the ease, no shoulders taken back or tummies tucked in. Their uprightness comes from a clear inner skeletal alignment where muscles are free to act and not hold unnecessarily.
Posture often is misunderstood and artificially forced and unbalanced. Such posture can adversely affect eyesight, thinking, mood, bones, joints and ligaments, and diminish the optimal functioning of organs. A well-aligned spine significantly contributes to your overall health. This is a nice conclusion of all the previous workshops.
