1. Why this is different
Think of the way you are sitting right now. Or standing… or lying down.
Could you keep this exact position for 20 minutes? For just 5 minutes? Without fidgeting around, or feeling tense and uncomfortable?
I've been sitting upright for 2 hours, focussed on writing and haven't fidgeted once. I have more energy now than when I sat down.
How? — I use the elastic structures of my back as "springs.”
If you are human you have these "posture springs." But the way you move and sit is preventing them from working.
What if the solution to posture has been hidden INSIDE you this whole time?
2. What this might do for you
Using these bio-mechanical springs is the key to powerful posture for life.
But there is only ONE body shape that "loads" all of the springs, all at the same time.
And once you get into this specific posture your own bio-mechanical springs will keep you in position.
No more sore back, no more tired muscles, no more leaning on chairs or desks.
I've worked with 100s of men and women – and analysed 1000s more – and NO ONE is making this body shape naturally.
The mechanism for powerful posture is built into your body... but you need to flick the switch with your mind.
Then your posture springs will be working for you.
Whether you sit, stand, walk, run, fight or f***
3. The secret history of “posture springs”
The posture springs have been discovered, lost and rediscovered many times.
The last time an entire culture used their posture springs we had the Ancient Greeks.
When modern men look at Ancient Greek statues they just see muscles and go lift weights..
But Diana Watts, author of "Renaissance of the Greek Ideal" did something different.
She tried getting into the postures of the discus thrower, the archer, and the charioteer she saw:
"The secret consists in a condition of the muscles totally different from any realised by athletes since the time of the Greeks, a condition of Tension, which transforms dead weight into a living force, [i.e. springs]
and which made the Greek as different from the modern human being as a stretched rubber band differs from a slack one.
There are frequent allusions in 'The Iliad' to this power possessed by the Greeks of transforming their muscles on the instant into a condition of almost superhuman force"
F. Matthias Alexander was a Shakespearean actor. He needed poise in public speaking and physical presence on stage.
But then he lost his voice. And every method he tried failed. So he decided to experiment with his posture in front of 3 mirrors.
He found only ONE specific alignment of his Back-Neck-Head that cured his lost voice, mouth breathing habit, and bad posture, all at the same time:
“you are widening your back and bringing the antagonistic pulls [springs] of the back into play—the lifter muscles, properly called the anti-gravity muscles.”
When you see this new postural alignment (of FM Alexander himself but not all his followers!)... it's the same strange shape as some of the Ancient Greek statues!
More recently, elite level sports is beginning to catch up with ancient athletics.
Philip Anloague, Professor of Physical Therapy says:
“Stiff muscles are a counter-intuitive superpower of NBA athletes... Strength is important, but stiffness can help an athlete generate even more power... Like a spring or a rubber band, when the muscle is stretched, that stiffness helps to create elastic energy."
So – if people are able to activate their posture springs during war, live theatre, and elite sports...
Then you can probably use your posture springs sitting at your desk, walking down the street, or flirting with a girl!
4. The REAL reason your posture isn't as good as it could be
If you’ve tried other methods and they didn't work for very long... it's not your fault and not a surprise.
That’s because they all aim for the wrong "shape" of posture. They all want you to "stand up straight with your shoulders back."
You already know this doesn't work in practice… but it also doesn’t work in theory!
Pulling your shoulders back in this way makes it impossible to use the posture springs up and across your back.
So the method you're about to learn is different... It's based on the ONLY shape of posture that activates all the posture springs.
That’s why I can sit here for 2 hours, focussed on writing and haven't fidgeted once.
5. Why you weren’t taught this in school
Why haven't you heard about these posture springs before?
Because modern life is all about finding cures for specific PARTS. But the posture springs need alignment of the WHOLE.
The ancient greek education applied their mathematics and philosophy to >>>>>> training for war and athletics.
But we moderns survive with terrible posture because civilization and technology make it easy for us.
If something goes wrong we just find a specialist to patch us up. In school every subject has its own teacher and room.
Remember when you were a kid fascinated with your own body mechanics and how things work?
The solution is inside you.
6. The best time to improve your posture
Like planting a tree… the best time to improve your posture was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
But you can’t expect to get rid of 20 years of bad habits in 20 minutes.
How many times have you slouched in a chair? Or caught yourself with "text neck" hunched over your phone?
And how many failed attempts to “Stand Up Straight With Your Shoulders Back?”
Every day you are being moulded by modern chairs, phones, shoes etc. If you don’t intervene now then the only way is down.
You've seen those road signs of elderly people stooped over with walking sticks? You can say no to this predictive programming!
7. I've been in your (barefoot) shoes
In the last 15 years I have tried almost everything when it comes to posture.
Lifting weights, alternative therapies, expensive chairs, posture devices, stand-up desks, barefoot shoes etc.
Some things made me feel better for a while.. but as soon as I stopped, the bad posture came creeping back.
I kept having to go back for "patchwork." I've spent thousands on training programs, devices, furniture and treatments.
I still wasn’t using my posture springs. I didn’t know the correct body shape that loads the springs.
Then 4 years ago I learned the principles of posture and a method for activating the springs.
Here’s how it works…
8. The Mechanism for powerful posture
To use your body’s "posture springs" it’s important to first understand what gives them all this power.
The first thing you should know is it’s not about huge muscles. Even though muscles are a necessary part of the spring load system, the real power comes from elastic connective tissue.
These elastic structures connect all parts of the body, from head to toe. Scientists have discovered these “biological springs" are as strong as steel.
But to load a spring you need to pull it from both ends at the same time. This causes the spring in-between to resist and pull back in the opposite direction – storing elastic recoil energy.
Think of stretching a rubber band between your fingers. All you need to do is release one hand and it pings across the room.
Or jumping on a trampoline and its springs propel you up higher than you could ever jump before. Or shooting a bow and arrow…
And it's all based on a predictable mechanical principle — elastic energy. So you don't need big muscles, or a small waistline, or lucky genetics.
Using your bio-mechanical springs is the key to powerful posture for life.
And there is only ONE body shape that "loads" all the springs, all at the same time.
The mechanism for powerful posture is already built into your body... but you need to flick the switch with your mind.
9. How to get started
I've found the fastest way is a combination of 1-to-1 sessions with me up front, plus training videos so you can practice on your own later.
So here's the plan for the next 3 weeks...
Each week you get a 1-to-1 session with me over Zoom. Practical and action oriented, customised for your specific posture and body type.
You get a full posture analysis and "body audit" which saves you years of figuring this stuff out on your own.
You get a technique for daily practice – designed just for you – which leads to the one shape that activates the posture springs system.
You also get access to all 10x training videos from my course "Principles of Posture: a Practical Guide for Self-Experimenters"
3 week intensive training program
3x one-to-one sessions with me (on zoom)
10x training videos on the Principles of Posture
Start w/b December 1st 2023
5 people max per group.
After payment you get instant access to all 10 course training videos. So you can start watching them before your first session with me.
I'll email you within 24 hours to arrange a day and time. I'm very flexible with TimeZones. If you don't see my email for some reason contact: email@example.com
There are No Refunds on this program because it includes 1 to 1 sessions and the places are limited.
10. Here’s what some pupils say about me...
"When I first found Kevin, I had tried many things to combat the pain and inflexibility that I had been experiencing in my 20s and 30s. I sit often at the computer screen and am pretty active as well, but the trips to chiropractors, pain doctors and masseuses wasn’t helping my back, shoulder and leg issues. I was willing to try anything and found Kevin by chance online.
Seeing a posture guy over Zoom was weird, but why not? At our first session, I was surprised to find out how much of how I lived worked counter to allowing my body the stretch, support and balance it craved.
Kevin makes it clear that working with him is not a one time, miracle fix. It’s a life practice that you consciously incorporate consistently to get the results. His methods definitely seemed unconventional and counter to the way I learned to live from books and “experts”, but the proof is that I now stand taller and am stronger with less pain than I’ve had in 20 years. Thank you to Kevin for driving the road less traveled and educating me on how to move correctly."

They learned the same principles and technique you get here. All of these men have different body types, lifestyles, and goals. Everyone's posture is unique – but the same general principles apply to each person.
I've taught: sports stars, scientists, coders, dancers, crypto traders, medical doctors, business owners, meditators, martial artists, engineers, construction workers, fitness coaches, office workers... men, women, young, old, fit, unfit, tall, short…
So the choice is yours.
You can either keep doing what you're doing and hope your posture gets better all by itself...
Or for $300 you get the principles and technique that cost me 15 years and $15,000 (ouch I ran the numbers.)
