Why is our western culture riddled with joint pain, stiffness, and circulatory issues? Because we don’t move enough. The human body wasn’t designed to sit in a chair or lie on a couch for hours on end. But for many of us, we play our role in society and work for long hours at a desk or use television as a form of relaxation. In this jovial and educational episode Drew’s guest, Aaron Alexander, explains simple ways we can transform our posture and attitude with simple, effective, natural movements that don’t interfere with our craving for technology. Aaron is a manual therapist and movement coach who is responsible for the Align Podcast and the author of the new book, The Align Method. During the podcast, Aaron explains how and why we lose our range of mobility when other cultures don’t, how movement affects our mental and emotional health, and why introspection is necessary and so darn funny.
