Radical in its simplicity, Dr. Eric Goodman’s visionary approach to mindful movement corrects the complacent adaptations that lead to back and joint pain, and teaches us to harness the body’s natural movement patterns into daily activities to make us fit, healthy, and pain free. Our sedentary lifestyle has led to an epidemic of chronic pain. By adapting to posture and movement that have us out of balance—including sitting all day at a keyboard, tilting our heads forward to look at our phones—we consistently compromise our joints, give our organs less room to function, and weaken our muscles. How we hold and live in our bodies is fundamental to our overall health, and the good news is that we all hold the key to a healthier body. Dr. Goodman has spent years studying human physiology and movement. He has trained world-class athletes for better performance, and has healed people of all ages and occupations of lifelong debilitating pain. His theory of self-healing is now available to everyone. His practical program trains the posterior muscle chain—shoulders, back, butt, and legs—shifting the burden of support away from joints and putting it back where it belongs: into large muscle groups. Filled with helpful diagrams and sixty color photographs, True to Form shows readers how to successfully integrate these powerful movements into everyday life—from playing with the kids to washing dishes to long hours in the office—transforming ordinary physical actions into active and mindful movements that help to eliminate pain, up your game, or simply feel more energetic. True to Form shows you how to move better, breathe better, and get back to using your body the way nature intended.

A radical and proven approach to becoming fit, healthy and pain-free without strenuous training, Dr. Eric Goodman's philosophy of self-healing movement and breathing is quickly being adopted by athletes and non-athletes the world over. People all over the world are experiencing more chronic pain than ever before, and it's hardly a surprise. Leaning over our smart phones, hunching forward over keyboards, sitting long work days in uncomfortable chairs only to get in the car-we have taught our bodies to adopt a seated lifestyle, but at what physical cost? Our movement patterns are no longer based on the body's natural mechanisms, leading to the back, knee, hip, foot and neck pain that has become an almost ubiquitous presence in American life. Dr. Goodman's revolutionary Foundation Training Program is the answer to this complacent adaptation. An integrated, powerful combination of flexibility- and strength-building movements, Foundation Training repairs maladapted movement and breathing patterns through three basic principles: Anchoring-improving strength and flexibility in the feet, which act as the body's anchors and directly affect posture and movement. Decompression-lifting and widening your rib cage, which improves breathing and strengthens the surrounding core muscles. Integration-anchoring and decompressing your body not just when practicing Foundation Training exercises, but also in your everyday life to effectively support the whole body. Getting strong and fit doesn't have to involve intense training or exercise. Instead, Dr. Goodman shows how your time is best spent focusing on strengthening your posterior chain muscles, and increasing the stabilization and flexibility in the muscles of the rib cage as you go about the simple activities of daily life. This innovative yet sensible technique has helped athletes and non-athletes alike to end the cycle of injury and pain. With the help of instructional diagrams and helpful narratives, True to Form teaches readers the philosophy, logic and movement patterns behind Foundation Training. Dr. Goodman's techniques can be used to enhance performance, repair damage, or simply to provide a solid fitness level for all.

Restoring healthy posture from childhood for relief from chronic pain, easy flexibility, and enduring strength and vitality well into old age • Offers 12 physical exercises to become mindful of your posture and discover pain-free alignment of your pelvis, rib cage, shoulders, neck, and back • Provides simple yet detailed instructions on how to sit, stand, walk, bend, get up from a chair, sit to meditate, sleep, and practice yoga with proper alignment • Includes full-color diagrams and posture photographs from around the world Our bones are the framework of support for our bodies, much like the wall studs and beams of a house. Yet the alignment of the skeleton along the vertical axis of gravity is largely overlooked today, even by fitness experts and yoga teachers. In a culture of cocked hips, sauntering models, and slouching TV watchers, where “chin up, shoulders back, stomach in” is believed to be good posture, we have forgotten what healthy alignment looks and feels like--leading to chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain for millions. Sharing photographs from around the world of “gurus” of natural posture and authentic strength, such as women in their 80s who easily carry heavy loads on their heads and toddlers learning to walk, Kathleen Porter shows what natural skeletal alignment truly looks like. With insights based on the fundamental laws of physics and detailed full-color diagrams, she guides you through an understanding of the body’s naturally pain-free design. She explains that when the body is aligned as nature intended, your weight is supported by your bones rather than your muscles, allowing a blissful release from chronic muscular tension--which you may not even be aware you had. She offers 12 physical exercises to become mindful of your posture and discover healthy alignment of your pelvis, rib cage, shoulders, neck, and your body as a whole. Providing easy-to-follow instructions for mindful alignment during the most ordinary daily activities, even sleeping, as well as a chapter on practicing yoga safely, Porter shows how returning to our forgotten alignment from childhood can offer relief from chronic pain and tension and can provide easy flexibility, enduring strength, and vitality well into old age.
