When the body is aligned as nature intended, supported by the bones rather than the muscles, a blissful release from chronic muscular tension can occur. With full-color diagrams, Kathleen Porter reveals the body’s naturally pain-free design, providing easy-to-follow instructions for mindful alignment during the most ordinary daily activities. Includes a chapter on practicing yoga safely.
In this richly illustrated manual for parents, teachers, and kids themselves, movement educator and researcher Kathleen Porter explains how to relearn natural alignment with a simple movement routine that “reminds” the body of its natural patterns.
