Continuum Is Improving My Posture Thank Goodness

 

Hi folks,

Left: posture before Continuum session, head and shoulders forward, belly out, and leaning forward; Right: improved posture after Continuum session.

Left: posture before Continuum session, head and shoulders forward, belly out, and leaning forward; Right: improved posture and stance after one hour Continuum session.

If you look around you will observe that people have a wide range of postures, some slouching close to the ground, heads protruding forward with shoulders hunched, whilst others stand erect and tall. This is all a matter of posture and stance, and I have problems with both. I tend to round my shoulders due to tight pectoral muscles, stick my head out in front of my body looking at the ground, whilst leaning forward putting a constant strain on my calves and quads. Such habits die hard, and they negatively impact your biomechanics, and thus sports performance. Regular Continuum  and dance sessions with Rebecca are having a remarkable effect on both my posture and stance, with a clear increase in comfort whilst running and removal of chronic tension in my calf muscles. The latter probably contributed to chronic plantar fasciitis in the past.

Slowly FitOldDog is learning another new trick, but a complex one. I would give Continuum a try if you have a posture problem (just look in the mirror).

  1. But your toes are off the ground in the second picture; it looks like an unnatural balance and not comfortable.

    • Hi Marian,
      My toes were off of the ground to see if they were free to easly move, which is not the case when I lean forward into my habitual pose. It is funny how I appear to be leaning back, but I felt completely relaxed, especially my calves and quads. I’m still trying to find the right place, but where I was was really messing up my legs.
      Interesting stuff.
