I’ve been annoying my whole family lately by constantly correcting their posture. I can’t help it, it’s what I do.
I teach Pilates and ELDOA, and I can’t stand to see anyone I love compressing their spine!
It doesn’t just make you look better, it’s actually better for your body and if you are young, you can prevent a lot of problems by fixing your posture sooner rather than later.
It’s funny, my own kids think I’m so annoying but guess who they come to when they (or their friends) have an ache or a pain?
ELDOA is a technique that creates space at specific joints by using your own body strength.
By improving your posture with ELDOA, you can improve so many different systems in the body.
As I’ve mentioned before, fascia is connected all throughout the body like a giant body stocking. All of the body is in continuity with the fascia. The whole body benefits when you practice ELDOA.
Our organs and body systems are closely connected to the health and quality of our fascia, especially in the spine.
Fun fact: this connection was totally discovered by accident.
👉🏼 Guy Voyer (inventor of ELDOA) thought he was just helping his patients with back pain. But they came back to him reporting not just less back pain, but other benefits, like improved sleep, less headaches, better digestion.
He finally figured out that the fascia tension created by the ELDOA postures also helped just about every other system of the body to work optimally too.
By just sitting up straight and lengthening your spine, you develop strength that creates space for those organs, as well as the nerves and blood vessels.
The strength of sitting up straight through the spine is so important for not only the spine and skeleton, but all of the functions that the body does like digestion, elimination, and breathing.
It’s vital for overall health.
👉🏼 Join me in my upcoming LIVE 4-class series: We are starting on March 22! We'll do lots of stretching and ELDOA for different parts of the spine. It all helps with posture!
