Description:

Your organization in gravity improves not through trying to hold a position, but through learning to improve how you organize yourself in action from the ground up. Shift your understanding & experience of “good” posture
FROM: a static “ideal” position based on an external idea                  
TO: a dynamic readiness for action based on internal sensation

Moshe Feldenkrais wrote extensively on posture: “From the dynamic point of view, every stable posture is one of a series of positions that constitute a movement…”  “Posture is therefore describing action, and is a dynamic term.” “… A tree that has grown upright will bend its top in whatever direction the wind is blowing. In the same way good upright posture is that from which a minimum muscular effort will move the body with equal ease in any desired direction.”
