If you’ve heard of the Alexander Technique, you may associate it with “good posture.”
In my fifth conversation with trauma survivor and trauma awareness activist Shay Seaborne, we discuss the implications and impact of posture and body language on people dealing with stress and trauma, and what neuroscience is telling us about this. I dispel some common myths (and potentially harmful advice) we so often hear about improving our posture and give a quick tip with a different approach that is both more physically comfortable and more sustainable.

Have you noticed that stress – or even trauma – effects your posture? Or how making yourself small – or big – has an impact on how you feel?
