What is Posturing?
Posturing is a term I came up with to describe how our bodies’ positions (or posture) and movement have come to be and impact our wellbeing - and vice versa. The experience of Posturing involves ideally both bringing awareness into our own bodies, through embodiment practice, and looking at the Body in a full length mirror.
When I was a physical therapy aide, I developed an affinity for alignment and saw how improving posture improves health. Now my work is also informed by mystical experiences, the practice of embodiment, meditation, and ongoing research on subjects such as trauma, gait, energy, spiritual cosmologies, consciousness, and relationships. Posturing encompasses my ongoing experience with somatics. It reveals not-yet-processed emotions, thoughts, stored experiences, family lineage and karmic imprints informing how we hold our bodies, and generating their habitual movement (and/or pain) patterns.
In Posturing work, we learn to FEEL our bodies' layers of energy and the stories they contain. We unravel the story by feeling and verbalizing it. As a result, the energetic holding pattern and related posture begins to experience a change and can even unwind itself.
Essentially, posturing work is a hybrid of embodied energy work and embodied mindfulness. Some may call this experience, Bodyfulness. Its aim is deeper Self-understanding, cohesion, and connection.
When Posturing is practiced in a group I call it "Postural Playshop." Postural Playshop groups are currently forming & meeting on Zoom. Postural Playshop is $50 per participant, for about 2 hours. It's a great Space-Especially Now- for monthly, peer-supported multidimensional self-care!
