Your body didn’t have a user’s manual, until now.
This newsletter is a growing collection of what everybody (including you!) deserves to know about their body.
With weekly learning, from posture and ergonomics to relaxation and mindfulness, because, oh yeah, your brain is part of your body, too.
Practical knowledge you won’t find anywhere else that means:
less pain, less tension, less fatigue
more ease, better performance
lifelong mobility and health
presence, sustainability, freedom, and joy.
Delivered right to your inbox.
With a free subscription, you’ll get a weekly e-mail with quick tips and inspiration to help you move better and feel better. It’s great! In fact, it’s many of the lessons that people and businesses normally pay quite a bit for.
And some people have said I should charge money and create more of this stuff, because this is different from anything else on the internet. At some point, I might do just that, and begin offering a premium subscription alongside free content. But for now, it’s all going up freely available!
And I know your time is valuable. You’ll find great benefit for your posture, your body, and your overall wellness in as little as fifteen minutes a week.
Fifteen minutes out of the 10,008 minutes you have per week seems like an investment you can definitely make in yourself.
Plus, you’ll have access to the entire archive!
Who am I to be writing this?
My name’s Graeson. I’m a mindful posture and movement coach. I live happily with chronic neck pain that used to debilitate me, and that journey is why I care so much about this. As for my expertise, here’s my unique blend you won’t find anywhere else:
I’m a nerd, with interdisciplinary graduate training in anthropology, functional anatomy, human development, neuroscience and education, plus I keep on top of the latest in movement and pain science. I can’t point to scientific references for everything I teach (because frankly the science isn’t there yet), but I keep things grounded in the real world, I steer clear of bullshit, and I say when I don’t know the answer to something.
I’m a nationally certified Alexander Technique teacher. Alexander Technique is the best practical method of learning about your body and how to change habits, has been shown to be more effective than exercise or manual therapy at reducing some types of pain, and I spent three years learning how to teach it.
I’ve worked with people across all walks of life. Basically any medical history you can think of, plus actors, dancers, athletes, musicians, singers, yogis, surgeons, office workers, telecommuters, kids, seniors, you name it. I’m a performer myself (improv!). I understand unique, individual needs, and also that as diverse as people are, we all have some fundamental ways we use and abuse our bodies in common. And I know how to apply this info and make it practical for anybody.
I love this stuff, and I know from my own experience with pain and from the hundreds of people I’ve worked with how important, how life-changing this is.
And because this newsletter is accessible to anyone, it’s a truly exciting project for me.
Need more individualized help? I offer private coaching.
This newsletter is an amazing self-improvement, self-study tool, but sometimes there’s no substitute for individualized support, especially for those of us dealing with chronic pain or illness. I offer private online coaching as well as hands-on coaching in San Diego.
