The Wedge has your back—and your neck and your shoulders and . . . 

Our unique design reminds the body how to sit naturally and comfortably upright. It's smaller than other posture cushions, so it's easily portable for taking along with you anywhere in the world you go!

The Wedge™ & Tan Wedge™

The little cushion that teaches you how to sit comfortably!
The Wedge plants your pelvis at the natural angle that supports a solidly strong yet relaxed upright spine. This often brings relief from the pain and discomfort that's typically experienced when we sit for periods of time on a misaligned pelvis.

Available in black (The Wedge) and tan (Tan Wedge) these rugged cushions are small enough to be easily portable. Filled with rubber sand from recycled rubber tires, our Wedges are sturdily made and will support you for years of happy sitting.

The Travel Wedge (see below) is our more light-weight version, filled with buckwheat hulls

Dimensions: 12" x 5" x 2"        $29.95 ($5 flat rate shipping)

No 'donut holes' needed with our posture cushions!

Other posture cushions are bigger and typically include a cut-out hole at the back. This is designed to relieve pressure on the tail bone (or coccyx), but it never addresses the underlying cause of this pressure—misalignment of the pelvis. Our Wedges establish the 'home base' alignment that makes these cut-out holes irrelevant, while training your body how to sit naturally and comfortably.

The Travel Wedge™

All the same great features, only lighter weight for easy travel!

Exactly like our regular Wedges when it comes to size, shape, and postural benefits, the Travel Wedge is filled with buckwheat hulls, making it even more lightweight and easily portable. Take it with you anywhere you go in the world!

"Kathleen Porter's insights about skeletal alignment are destined to change the way we think about and inhabit our bodies."

                                        -Christiane Northrup, M.D.

 

We're here to help you learn how to sit, stand, and move comfortably—the way Nature intended you to do.

Even as a yoga teacher and massage therapist many years ago, I still experienced chronic pain in my body because of my underlying skeletal misalignment. I didn't yet understand that when ignoring our alignment, stretching and strengthening muscles could be a vicious cycle, one in which I and many others had gotten stuck.

I finally freed myself of my chronic stiffness and pain and became more genuinely flexible and strong, not through exercise (which has many real benefits) but by learning how to inhabit my body according to our innate human design.

It wasn't a quick fix (there simply is no such thing!) but it was an enduring fix, and now at age 74, I continue to reap the benefits of being supported by aligned bones. This has allowed my muscles to do their primary job of moving my bones via a system of pulleys and levers, rather than muscles having to struggle to hold me up or hold me together.

This is why I've been so passionately focused on sharing this message for the past 24 years through the books I've written and the posture aid cushions I've created (scroll below to learn more) —  as well as the classes I've taught and my new online programs.

This approach really works—and I can help you learn how to do this for yourself!

Natural Posture for Pain-Free Living: The Practice of Mindful Alignment

Restoring healthy posture from childhood for relief from chronic pain, easy flexibility, and enduring strength and vitality well into old age.

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.
