The best way to improve or maintain your movement is to practice good postural techniques when sitting, standing, or moving.
Practicing good movement is not always as easy as it sounds, especially for some of us who have forgotten what good movement feels like. The following exercise can help bring back that good movement feeling.
Standing Position – Stand with your back against a wall, heels about three inches from the wall and feet about six inches apart: weight should be evenly distributed.
Place arms at your sides, palms forward. Keep ankles straight and kneecaps facing the front. Keep your lower back close to the wall. Straighten the upper back, lifting the chest and bringing shoulders back against the wall. Bring head back to touch the wall while keeping the chin tucked in as if a string is attached to the middle of the back of your head pulling it back. Pull up and in with the muscles in the lower abdomen, trying to flatten the abdomen. Hold position for about 10 seconds, breathing normally.
Relax and repeat three to four times. Repeat entire exercise at least three times a day for ideal results.
