My back has never been super healthy. I have a rather swayed back (memories of my mom telling me to “tilt” come to mind when I write that), and I have ridiculously poor posture, especially at the computer. When I attempt to sit with proper posture, my back gets really fatigued and maintaining good posture is very difficult. Catch-22.
Until Sherri’s magic trick! At yoga, my instructor Sherri suggested that one could just slip a rolled up towel or the edge of a folded blanket under the tailbone. I suppose you could buy one of those “wedge” pillows, too. It forces your body forward a bit. Miraculous! Amazing! I was able to sit on the floor at my kid’s karate belt test for two and a half hours with this neat little tip.
Why am I just learning this after 40 years? Did the rest of you know? Why didn’t you tell me?
