Welcome! I’m glad you’re here.
My name is Lauren Hill and I’m an AmSAT Certified Alexander Technique teacher based in St. Paul, Minnesota USA. The Alexander Technique approaches posture in a different way than you’re probably used to.
When you have good posture your clothes fit better, it can make you appear thinner, look more attractive, and feel more confident. But it’s so much more than that.
Your posture has a profound effect on your health and well-being. Unfortunately, when you look for help with issues from back pain and breathing to digestion and headaches you often overlook the effect of your posture.
Your posture is too important to ignore. However, you need to realize that improving your posture isn’t just a simple matter of needing to learn to stand or sit up straight. Maybe you’ve tried that approach and it just hasn’t worked.
It’s well worth your while to start paying some attention to your posture–but in a way that is fun, manageable, and sparks an interest in yourself. That’s the goal of this blog.
Before the next post, take some time to think about and write down your own current definition of posture. Go ahead, take a few minutes and write it down.
What is posture? And while you’re at it, What’s good posture?
My goal at the onset of this blog is to post every other week. This will give you adequate time to digest and experiment with the information.
