I hope to vindicate myself for my long silence by revealing just how busy I have been! I recently completed a new book, as well as developed and manufactured three new posture-related products in partnership with my good friend, Irene McNeely. After keeping such a low profile, I’m now stepping forward with, not one, but two Facebook pages, a presence on Linked-in, an all-new Website and a Twitter account! Now that’s a switch!
The new book is called Sad Dog Happy Dog: How Poor Posture Affects Your Child’s Health & What You Can Do About It. The products are The Wedge™, a small, portable cushion to help “park” the pelvis while sitting; the Comfy Shoulder Band, an adjustable elastic strap that helps relieve tight shoulders and aids in upright sitting; and the Baby Wedgie™, a small cushion that fits in strollers and other sitting devices and prevents a baby’s pelvis from tucking (sad dog!) and the spine from collapsing. I am convinced that this early collapse begins the muscular conditioning that contributes to the slouching epidemic facing so many children today.
Check out our products, along with articles and great photos that tell the story here at our site. (You can even post comments on my blog!) Our products will be available within days at Amazon.com (just in time for the holidays!) and if you find this subject of interest and think it might be of interest to others, please help us get launched by passing this information along to people on your contact list.
If you are in the Portland area, I continue to offer classes and workshops that include “Alignment Basics”, “Meet Your Feet”, and “Will the Real Core Abs Please Stand Up”. I also lead a weekly mindfulness meditation gathering with an emphasis on finding the support of aligned bones for greater ease while sitting.
I would be very happy to hear from you. I will be on the Big Island from the middle of December to the middle of January. Hooray! If you will be there, I hope to see you.
Many thanks for all the support and encouragement I’ve received from so many of you!
