Mary Bond- The New Rules of Posture from Mary…”My book, The New Rules of Posture, presents new developments in movement education. It evolved out of my wish to share the legacy of Ida Rolf with the general public. While this legacy includes the understanding of posture and movement, it also has philosophical implications. The deeper message is that the way we inhabit our bodies affects the ways in which we perceive the world and behave toward one another. My 2012 DVD, Heal Your Posture, further elucidates this message.”
