Lose 5lbs in 30 seconds

Sound too good to be true?

Well, ok maybe it is. But you can look 5lbs thinner by doing one simple thing. Stand up straight. ┬áSounds simple but it is true. Your posture effects the way you look – head to toe. When you stand tall with good posture you look thinner than when you slouch.

One of my pilates students told me that she went to her yearly physical and she actually has grown 1/2 inch taller since her last physical. How is this possible? She did not actually hit a mid life growth spurt, she is simply standing straighter. Through Pilates she has corrected postural imbalances and she has lengthened her body.

If you have questions about Pilates or stretches you can perform to improve your posture, please comment below. Though there are general things you can do, it is important to be analyzed by a professional to determine your specific needs.

The overhead squat is one of the assessments used to determine postural imbalances.

Be Well.
