NFPT Live: How to Cue Good Posture for Clients – Ep 54


Cueing good posture isn’t always so straightforward (pun intended). There are many ways to cue proper form for “good posture” – it’s a hot topic in the industry! Incorporating body awareness and preventing bad posture are two winning approaches that are ideally part of whatever approach you choose.

In this episode we talked about:

  • Don’t take the “wrong approach” (2:10)
  • Keep the message positive with suggestions (3:00)
  • Simplify the assessment with quiet observations (4:30)
  • Workplace seated evaluation (6:00)
  • Take lessons from yoga teachers (7:45)
  • Body scanning for body awareness (9:45)
  • Using muscles to cue posture – know your audience (11:45)
  • Position for deeper breaths instead of “posture” (12:45)
  • Mama posture (14:00)
  • Posture affects the kinetic chain and ultimately results (17:15)
