Why teach students about good posture?
How we can help your school
Our team is lead by Michelle Joyce, a pioneer in the field of posture correction. Her TEDx Talk (seen below) is about a forgotten chapter of American history when posture was a mandatory subject in every school up through the college level. She’s traveled the world promoting her book, teaching workshops and appearing as a featured guest on TV talk shows. Her training as a Marriage and Family Therapist gives her a unique perspective when it comes to motivational techniques to permanently change unhealthy posture habits.
Great Grandma Was Right – Posture Matters! | Michelle Joyce | TEDx
100 years ago America was a pioneer in reversing the effects of chronic sitting. Kids received lessons about ergonomics, body mechanics and healthy posture from grade school up through the college level. This large-scale public health campaign was designed to prevent the kinds of problems that have reached epidemic levels today. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to helping our kids beat the screentime slump, we just need to dust off a few forgotten lessons from our past. Michelle Joyce is on a mission to eliminate unhealthy posture! She’s frequently featured on TV shows and teaches posture workshops worldwide. Originally trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist, she believes that helping people change their posture involves much more than simply telling them to sit up straight.
