Pilates Quote: Good Posture

Good posture is not important for posture’s sake but is necessary to maintain good working order for our joints, muscles, and vital organs.  By becoming aware of our daily life habits and what our posture habits are like to stand, sit, and move, we have the opportunity to fine-tune our form and improve function.

Good posture habits involve the use of our muscles to fight gravity to stand tall, breathe deeply, and move with grace and ease!  We need SPACE to move – Joint space to bend our limbs, run, jump, and be active.  And inside – organ space for our heart, lungs, digestive system and other vital organs to function optimally.

Whether you’re 5 or 95,  by paying attention to your posture you can ensure that you’re developing the right balance of strength and flexibility to “stand tall” and maintain excellent whole-body health.
