Pain-Free Posture Handbook: 40 Dynamic Easy Exercises to Look and Feel Your Best

Pain-Free Posture Handbook: 40 Dynamic Easy Exercises to Look and Feel Your Best, by Lora Pavilack and Nikki Alstedter, Althea Press, 2016, paperback, 164 pages.

We Americans sit for an average of 13 hours a day. Working at a computer, commuting by car, subway, or bus, and plunking down on the couch add up to a big negative for our health. The authors of this book understand the benefits of movement. They learned firsthand the value of healthy alignment and good posture as professional dancers: Lora Pavilack as a Radio City Rockette and Nikki Alstedter as an aerial acrobat. And they teach Pilates and other exercises to help people transform their bodies. This handy guide teaches proper posture when we stand, sit, read, drive, lift, carry heavy bags, tend the garden, and, believe it or not, text. And the authors describe in words and with illustrations exercises you can do at home, at work, and on the go.
