Thanks to Mom for providing this link to an article that tells the basics of correct posture, corroborated in Kelly Starrett’s book Becoming a Supple Leopard (which I am currently studying and using as my guide to posture and movement corrections). The Gokhale Method book is one that I read last year, but Kelly Starrett speaks my language–his book is more painstakingly detailed. These two books come at the same postures through different way of explaining. Gokhale is looking at cultures in which back pain is minimal in the populations (non-desk-bound cultures), while Starrett is a doctor of physical therapy and works with athletes. It’s been very informative to me to read both explanations.
This link shows us the posture ills of Lady Gaga, as well as a perfect squat by a toddler.
