Introducing my Mom, Cynthia, and Michael Mazur, an Alexander technique practitioner, who we are working with to gain more awareness around healthy posture, while selling Owl Furniture down in Florida.
Focusing on balance and ” there are no rules” awareness, was a big part of our two hour concentration during this session. Michael has a very laid back and relaxing approach to guiding better posture awareness. He uses the phrase “posture police” in that, when a person is told to do something out of their realm of comfort it can cause stress, and is counter productive. This can cause harm if practiced repeatedly over time.
We have touched on a few very interesting structural philosophies, such as “Tensegrity (coined by Buckminster Fuller and modeled by Tom Flemons ), and Biotensegrity created by Stephen M. Levine.
Here are some links to check out:
There are overlaps with Tom Myers teachings in Anatomy Trains, who I have worked with before, and has endorsed the Owl stool. Bio mechanics of the human anatomy continues to intrigue me as I add new teachings and philosophies to Owl ergonomics. It’s a very exciting journey !, ……stay tuned for more !
Thanks for reading ….here’s sending some warm sunshine back to you all in snowy Maine !
