The Power of Posture

Even before you say anything, people see your posture. Most of the information we are getting from a person is from body language, and posture is the rock on which everything else you say and do rests on. Posture is part of the on going status negotiations: Who is making the decision? Who gets the raise? Who gets the job? Who is radiating self-confidence? Who attracts romantic partners?

Bad posture can affect your health and lead to neck and back pains.

Posture has also a big influence on dancing and sports, cause imbalance and limit your performance. Perhaps, your teacher or coach has told you that you should hold your head up, shoulders back or relax a particular body part?

Posture is intertwined with emotions. For example, when you feel small and insignificant this will be visible in your posture. It is a feedback loop: if you change the posture, emotions change; and this again affects your posture. This loop can be positive or it can be negative. Learn how to create your positive feedback loop.

Bodywork on Three Levels:

Level 1: Pure Posture

  • Loosen tight muscles and tight fascia to make new posture possible
  • Postural Habit – learn a new posture + practice
  • The competitive, strong, masculine and feminine posture

Level 2: Emotional Work

  • Explore the emotional component
  • Open the heart
  • The care taker – the fatherly or motherly posture

Level 3: Sexuality

  • Connect posture to sexuality
  • The attractive male and female posture

It is possible for us to work with level 1 only, but we can’t go directly to level 2. Each level builds on the previous ones.
