Heal Your Posture: A 7-Week Workshop is the response to requests for a visual aid from readers of The New Rules of Posture.

It contains individualized lessons that step you through this revolutionary approach to improving your posture.
Heal Your Posture: A 7-Week Workshop with Mary Bond
Unlike posture improvement programs that promise instant results, HEAL YOUR POSTURE helps you understand the interrelated habits that underlie poor posture. By spending a week with each of 7 lessons, viewers will learn to re-map long-standing habits of walking, standing, sitting, and breathing that contribute to unhealthy and unattractive posture, as well as to back, neck, jaw and shoulder pain. Each lesson contains simple anatomy to help you understand your body better, ergonomics tips, and exercises that, once learned, can be incorporated into the activities of daily living. Lesson topics include pelvis and hip awareness, healthy breathing, core support, help for flat or rigid feet, shoulder support, jaw and eye tension, spine mobility, and fluid walking. Rather than training muscles into an ideal shape, Mary’s approach helps you recreate your best body from within, though awareness. In addition, principles contained in the program will help you get the most from your Pilates, yoga, dance or sports activities.

“How we use out bodies in daily life—how we sit, stand, walk move, bend and carry out domestic, leisure and work-related tasks—has profound implications in terms of comfort, energy and avoidance of mechanical stress. Teaching is an art, and Mary Bond displays great skill, knowledge and art as she gracefully leads us through a process of learning new ways of functioning. This highly informative video is a wonderful resource.” Leon Chaitow, ND, DO Honorary Fellow University of Westminster, London
“In Mary Bond’s smart new DVD, essential lessons of good self-use—immediately practical in daily home, office and recreational life—are taught via regular people, so we share in their questions as well as their discoveries.” Thomas Myers, Author of Anatomy Trains.
