Okay I am going with whatever comes to mind here. (Aren’t I always?)
I have been doing these structure stretches since .. before Christmas sophomore year at Auburn (latter third of 2005). I refer to them as structural because the idea is to relax all your muscles and balance on your frame (skeleton). It’s almost like meditation but in stead of being still I am constantly stretching/re-aligning my body. I study Gray’s Anatomy – the a book on human physiology- extensively. Also the biomechanical basis of human movement.
I feel better when my posture is improved. And on a side note, when I get stressed or emotionally sad/angry, I noticeably tense up and my posture worsens! And I am unable to physically return to a relaxed state until I am no longer emotionally agitated.
I am called in to work early today ah so that’s the end of that!
