We found this book by Esther Gokhale a couple weeks ago and I’ve been reading it and trying her principles and it’s amazing how much better if feels then what I had been doing.
I guess I should explain that I’ve had trouble with posture for years. At one point I looked like a hunchback, but with chiropractic help I’d been able to get more upright. Then I found an exercise program called T-Tapp and that seemed to help some except I would get my muscles so tight that I would have to take a break then end up with bad posture again. It was frustrating.
But when we found Esther’s method (which is basically the exact opposite of T-Tapp) I couldn’t be more intrigued. So I tried what little I could find on a youtube video (I’ll post it at the end of this post so you can try it too, she’s so much better at explaining it then me). I was amazed by how I could effortlessly keep my shoulders back and could sit straight for a while without feeling tired.
her book is really helpful and once I find a chair I can stretch sit on I think I’ll be well on my way to standing straight and pain free. So, check it out and let me know what you think.
The only thing I don’t really agree with is how she switches between talking about how the body was designed and evolved, as a Christian I believe it’s designed, but otherwise it’s chalk full of info.
