Posture, stance, and breathing are the three most important foundations of any technique. Posture is an important part of any stance. Posture is correct body and spine alignment.
The spine consists of 24 moving bones supported by muscles. Pairs of nerve roots exit the spine from between these interlocking bones called vertebrae. The spinal column is an essential link between the body and the nervous system. The extremities are all controlled by the information sent through these links. When there is abnormal pressure or tension on the vertebrae, information from the spinal cord is hampered. Good posture keep the nervous system operating correctly.
