The Benefits of Good Alignment

Good alignment happens when your feet, ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, and head all are stacked one on top of the other. Standing, sitting, and moving about in the world with proper alignment helps relieve pressure on your joints and spine. Certain stretches, like the Supine Morning Stretch, can also help improve your body's alignment.

You might be wondering, what is the difference between good alignment and good posture? Well, good alignment is a part of good posture, but good posture involves other things including:

  • Keeping your feet hip width apart
  • Standing with "soft" knees, neither bent nor straight
  • Maintaining the natural curves of your spine
  • and many more!
