Présentation de l'éditeur

In The New Rules of Posture, Mary Bond approaches postural changes from the inside out. She explains that healthy posture comes from a new sense we can learn to feel, not by training our muscles into an ideal shape. Drawing from 35 years of helping people improve their bodies, she shows how habitual movement patterns and emotional factors lead to unhealthy posture. She contends that posture is the physical action we take to orient ourselves in relation to situations, emotions, and people; in order to improve our posture, we need to examine both our physical postural traits and the self-expression that underlies the way we sit, stand, and move. The way we walk, she says, is our body’s signature. Bond identifies the key anatomical features that impact alignment, particularly in light of our modern sedentary lives, and proposes six zones that help create postural changes: the pelvic floor, the breathing muscles, the abdomen, the hands, the feet, and the head. She offers self-help exercises that enable healthy function in each zone as well as information on basic ergonomics and case histories to inspire us to think about our own habitual movements. This book is a resource for Pilates, yoga, and dance instructors as well as healthcare professionals in educating people about postural self-care so they can relieve chronic pain and enjoy all life activities with greater ease.

Body awareness to the max!!!!!! 6 septembre 2007
Par Coffee Lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
OH MY GOSH!!!! This book has answered so many questions for me. When I was growing up, my Mom always told me to stand up straight. Try as I might, I never was able to. Once I got older, I was told by doctors that I had a pelvis that tilted back (I know, too much information). What they didn't tell me was I could change the tilt!!!!! For the first time in my life, I can now stand up straight and have the proper curve in my back!!! The book has helped me with several other aspects that I wasn't aware of...how when you walk you're actually supposed to be pushing off with the toes of the foot that is in back (it makes walking easier, I was a heel walker). I'm only on Ch 4 (breathing) but I feel this book is worth it's weight in gold!!!!!

A Useful Tool for Every Body 26 juin 2008
Par Cynthia Roses-Thema, Ph.D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The New Rules of Posture: How to Sit, Stand, and Move by Mary Bond is a must read if you're interested in increasing your somatic awareness of your body in motion. Hoorah! finally someone writes about the body as a moving entity and not as a stable unit moving just one joint at a time. Posture for Bond is not about standing still and sticking your chest out, but about how you move is number one of the new rules. Bond writes, "your posture is the product of the ongoing perceptual activities through which you orient yourself to your world."
Bond's goal is to make readers more aware of opening the body up to the world. The entire book focuses on the action of walking to gain an understanding of what Bond calls open stabilization and open orientation. These terms of Bond's encourage movement without unnecessarily tensing muscles in the body that over time develops fascial adhesions and ultimately leads to restricted movement and decreased range of motion. Fascial adhesions where two or more fascia stick together can occur in a variety of locations because fascia, the connective tissue in the body, is everywhere. In fact Bond writes that if everything in our bodies were taken away fascia would maintain a recognizable human form.
Things can get pretty complicated when posture is theorized as dynamic, but Bond is clear and precise. She divides her book into four sections: awareness, stability, orientation, and motion. Each section builds on the next. Threaded through each section are Bond's six zones of the body: breathing muscles, abdomen, pelvic floor, hands, feet and head. Bond states that all six regions are connected anatomically and unnecessary tension in any one of them causes a reaction in all of them.
To help guide the reader to change bodily habits, Bond uses explorations throughout the book. For example she writes, "stand comfortably as though you are waiting in line for movie tickets. Then take a step forward toward the ticket window. Notice which leg took the step." In this exploration entitled, "your best foot" Bond's point is that because the spine accommodates the habits you have with your legs, if you have a strong preference for one leg over the other it could cause misalignment all the way up to your jaw.
Throughout the book are fascinating facts and relationships in the body that if nothing else will help you to reconceive of your bodily connections. For example, Bond writes losing too much carbon dioxide by breathing too quickly can cause everything from depression to low back pain; she cautions against tightening the sacrum because it prevents your feet from meeting the ground successfully; and ,warns against performing the same movement over and over again. Why? Because repetition without staying aware of bodily signals diminishes our consciousness. All in all The New Rules of Posture enhances our consciousness and is a book to go back to again and again each time with a deeper understanding of the moving body.

Vague and unhelpful 31 août 2009
Par G. Steinberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I don't know how or why so many people have given this book a high rating. It has elaborate descriptions of exercises to do, but without photos, the descriptions are pretty useless. Trying to do the exercises based on the descriptions is sometimes okay but usually ridiculous. The description of the "Seated Sphinx" is impossible to follow, for example: based on this book's description, I have no idea what the exercise ought to look like or how to do it. For many of the exercises, the instructions are less about precisely what you're supposed to do than about how you ought to feel as you do the exercise, but the descriptions of how you ought to feel are often vague. And though often vague, the descriptions are incredibly long (often several pages), a fact that makes the described exercises hard to do (because how can you keep all that info in your head as you try to do the exercise?). For many exercises, you're supposed to be able to do the exercise just by "visualizing" it?!? But given that there aren't many illustrations in the book, I can't visualize anything (and I'm not sure that I believe that just visualizing something is going to make my body do it right automatically). Maybe these exercises work if you have a person who is giving you face-to-face, individual instruction as you do them, but reading from a book with hardly any photos doesn't work very well. A picture is worth a thousand words or, in this case, an entire book. There are a lot more helpful books out there with great descriptions and photos of exercises that really make a tremendous difference for your posture if you just do the exercise as instructed and shown (not with all sorts of pressure to feel the right sensations to get the exercise right). I recommend Anthony B. Carey's Pain-Free Program or Paul D'Arezzo's Posture Alignment or Janice Novak's Posture, Get It Straight! or even Perry Bonomo and Daniel Seidler's Why Does Working @ My Computer Hurt So Much? They're much, much, much, much better books than this one.

A revelation 25 août 2008
Par Andrew, Melbourne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have been receiving Rolfing treatment for a while and had experienced a lot of improvement but I wanted more. I eventually realised that no treatment is going to work unless after/in between treatments you make life style or muscle movement pattern changes. I first came across the free down loadable article on Mary Bonds website about sitting. This article is one of the chapters in the book. After, following the advice on sitting, I experienced immediate benefit, so I decided to buy the book. I haven't yet worked my wat through the whole of the book - that will take several months - but after 2 weeks and working on the feet and breathing execises in particular I have experienced releif from a groin pain I have had for 2 years plus. This isn't an overnight fix book, real results will take 6 months of dilignetly following the program. If you are prepared to put in the time and effort for this sort of time frame, I recomend this book. At the very least the book is a good explantion of how the body can function optimaly.

Great reference on posture and movement 29 juin 2007
Par D. Mckenzie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is truly a marvel! It is very informative and pushed me to rethink the way I stand, sit, move, breath, etc. with my body.

The practical exercises are the best part. You don't just read the information -- you can then practice and do things that will help you actually understand and live the principles.

The only thing that I question is the author's view that "reverse breathing" is bad for your health. Reverse breathing when done correctly is actually very health for you -- this is the breathing cycle that Taoists and Tai Chi Chuan practitioners utilize.
