Esther Gokhale

Take a look at this video by Esther - whose book I also recommend.

It is an excellent overview of what she, and practitioners like me, are trying to get across when we talk to patients about posture, movement, lifting, sitting etc.

There is compelling evidence that over the past 100 years the populations of industrialized countries have drifted away from the somatic heritage of their forbearers. We have adopted postural habits which are dramatically different from those used historically and still found in non-industrialized peoples today.
