And its all about posture: Ainsley H said he feels 2 inches taller after his dance partner told him his shoulders needed to be like coathangers – no hunching or slumping. We could have told him that at our Wednesday Chillout.
Our body posture affects how we feel: its all about keeping the shoulders down: we hold so much stress across out shoulders and upper back. One of our first warm-up exercises is letting the arms go loose, turning the waist so that the arms move from the shoulder, opening up the joint. It’s amazing how hard that is for some people to do, they’re so used to the hunched up shoulder position. We’ll be watching Ainsley’s shoulders with interest.
