Improve Your Posture

Posture - Dr. Feldenkrais preferred the term "acture" to describe what he considered "good posture". Acture being the ability to move in any direction without preparation. It's an interesting definition implying a state of even muscular tone with a readiness to act and respond to changes in your environment. This selection of products focuses on understanding and improving your posture and your ability to interact with your surroundings.
