Rethinking Posture is a fundamental and explicit teaching in which primal movement patterns takes on a fresh novel meaning. In it, author Dr. Lawrence Woods, who brings over twenty years of experience in this field, crosses the lines between consciousness, re-patterning and health, providing clear strategies and a common language that speaks to anyone who may be concerned about posture and health. By using systematic logic and critical thinking of foundational developmental principles, Rethinking Posture challenges us to re-think old models of how to sit, move and exercise.

Rethinking Posture analyses our sedentary lifestyles and our oblivious approaches to exercise. And more important, what we can do about it?
