When you attend one of our private classes, we’ll take a look at what’s going on with your body, and then we’ll blow your mind with a whole new set of rules. The lessons you learned in the past may indeed be the culprits of your pain, so we teach you how to break the ache and avoid it in the future.
During each private class you’ll receive:
Our posture classes aren’t exercise classes. It’s not about losing weight or working out. In fact, our classes are actually relatively “easy” in that you will re-learn how to use your body through repeated, precise movements. Our experienced teachers will also explain how to be tension-free and relax into the proper positions (who knew you had to learn how to relax?).
Along with our easy-to-follow instructions, our experienced teachers will make small, hands-on adjustments. Now, don’t freak out—we’re not going to be contorting you into circus-like positions. It’s just our gentle way to help you find the right rebellious posture.
You know those old paintings that have a fig leaf covering the subject’s…er …uhm…private parts? Well, that little leaf is the key to Posture Rebellion. Modern posture tells us to jut out our hips and tuck our butts, which flattens the natural lower curve of our backs. We teach you to envision the fig leaf going through your legs instead of sticking out straight in front of them. And the result? The triumphant return of the natural pelvic position and spinal curve you were born with. Welcome back, happy back.
Sticking out your chest like Tarzan does not a pain-free body make. Just look at what you’re really doing: when you thrust out your ribcage and throw back your shoulders, you actually shorten the spine rather than elongate it. Plus, you make your muscles do work that they’re not built for, so they get tired, you give up, and you slouch. We teach you to let the ribs fall to their natural position so the lungs can breathe easy and your spine can stand tall.
Talking on phones, staring at screens and yes, even taking selfies wreaks havoc on our necks. Our spines go all the way to the base of our skulls, yet we give ourselves goosenecks and create unsightly bumps in our upper spines. We teach you how to comfortably keep your head and neck aligned with the top of the spine, with your chin down and your head like a crown (gotta love rhymes). You may even find that your singing voice improves. No joke.
