Postural Assessment

15 min - Tutorial


Join Susan Salk as she assesses the posture of her student to demonstrate how you can look into the mirror to perform a simple, non-technical, postural assessment on yourself.

Susan encourages you to fix imbalances from the centerline as opposed to from the periphery, and explains what that means in this tutorial.
