See this article that I just wrote to learn more:
Steps to awareness, a guide to power of performance, supreme wellness
"...many people needlessly suffer pain and dysfunction from a lack of awareness of neutral posture, and people also suffer from events that happen to the body when they are in static positions too long away from neutral posture.
My teaching and this article series explains my view of posture, and how the body is designed to align with gravity, just as everything in the Universe aligns and moves with gravity.
Alignment with classic neutral posture can bring about balance, freedom of movement, relief from pain, and you can be handling gravity as your body is designed to handle it.
The position you are aiming for is called classic neutral posture. This is first expressed in a standing position, and after the muscles are comfortably at rest in this position, you will be able to move more efficiently with less effort.
You will learn how the energy of gravity is designed to be carried by the body in different positions. This puts less strain on the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.
You will also be more efficient in all systems of the body, including the functions of the brain, nervous system, circulatory system, breathing. In fact, all organs and systems of the body/mind benefit from the development of neutral posture.
The design of classic neutral posture shows that gravity is being primarily handled by the bones of the skeleton, and this puts minimal stress on the musculature of the body.
When you exercise, perform yoga, dance, and sports with this awareness; you will develop your body to be in accordance with celestial alignment of gravity, including your muscles, and all systems. This will help you to excel at any performance.
When you move with this internal awareness and balance, you will move with grace, speed, and power, because you are moving in correct alignment.
When you move away from standing position, the muscles are positioned and toned to handle this movement with the greatest efficiency. Each muscle and muscle group should be allowed to move in its natural range of motion without restriction. In this way, the skeleton is free to assume the correct alignment to handle the force of gravity.
If you stray from the gravity line in static positions for too long a period of time, or move with a lack of this celestial awareness, then you will suffer the consequences. Those commonly include tight muscles, myofascial adhesions in the area of your neck and upper shoulders, and often, your lower back.
In my clinical practice as a Licensed Massage Therapist, I have helped many people over the years with these restrictions, through massage therapy. I have also helped many people over the years with these problems by teaching them yoga.
I am basing these ideas directly from my clinical experiences working with thousands of people over the past 40 years, first as a yoga teacher, climbing instructor, and then in the past seven years, as a massage therapist."
