Truly good posture is not what we've been taught. It's easy, comfortable, relaxed and pain-free.

It's what healthy babies and toddlers discover all on their own, and it's meant to last a lifetime. As a yoga teacher and massage therapist many years ago, I experienced chronic pain in my own body. 

I freed myself of pain and became more flexible and genuinely strong by learning how to inhabit my body according to our innate human design.

This approach really works - and I can show you how it's done!

Overview:

Our bones are the framework of support for our bodies, much like the wall studs and beams of a house. Yet the alignment of the skeleton along the vertical axis of gravity is largely overlooked today, even by fitness experts and yoga teachers. In a culture of cocked hips, sauntering models, and slouching TV watchers, where “chin up, shoulders back, stomach in” is believed to be good posture, we have forgotten what healthy alignment looks and feels like--leading to chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain for millions.

  • Offers 12 physical exercises to become mindful of your posture and discover pain-free alignment of your pelvis, rib cage, shoulders, neck, and back
  • Provides simple yet detailed instructions on how to sit, stand, walk, bend, get up from a chair, sit to meditate, sleep, and practice yoga with proper alignment
  • Includes full-color diagrams and posture photographs from around the world

“The book is amazingly understandable, beautifully designed for maximum ease of use, and contains lots of documentation that justifies Porter’s claims. I happened to be struggling with a knee strain when I read it, and applying a simple change to my stance, per Porter’s instructions, brought instant improvement.”

-Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight.

Healthy Posture for Babies and Children

Tools for helping children sit, stand, and walk naturally. 

Buy from PublisherBuy from Amazon.com

Overview:

Babies and toddlers develop naturally healthy alignment by moving in instinctive ways. Their posture is easy and relaxed, founded on correct pelvic positioning and deep core muscles to hold their bodies upright. Yet, as evidenced by the slouching epidemic seen in school-age children, most kids lose this natural alignment early in life, often due to an overreliance on strollers, baby seats, and bucket-style carriers during infancy and the reluctance to put babies on their bellies because of widespread fear of SIDS.

  • A manual for parents, teachers, and kids to restore their natural alignment.
  • Explores the principles of natural alignment in accessible ways to share with children.
  • Details simple and fun exercises--for kids and adults alike--that “remind” the body of its natural patterns and movements.
  • Explains how innate movements and natural alignment play an essential role in the development of a fully functioning body and nervous system.
