We all want to improve our posture. But the question is how? We’ve been told stand up straight, put your shoulders back, chin up, etc… We put ourselves in fixed positions thinking we are correcting our posture but we are only creating more tension, stress, and incorrect habits. In this workshop, you will learn a 4-step method, and with repetition on a daily basis, you can change your posture without even knowing you’re doing it.
