Posture Assessment from the Side

Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA and Alexandra Williams, MA

You might be level- headed, but are you level-hipped and level-shouldered? What do the right and left sides of your body tell about your stance if we take a sidewards glance? Are you a “posture cheater” who displays a sneaky telltale clue that gives you away when you fake standing tall?

Even he likes his posture

Assessing posture from the left and right - simultaneously!

Part 3 of our Posture series takes a look at posture from both sides now to figure out how you stand (Joni Mitchell was no slouch). We know where you stand–on top! Or lifted nicely once you add our tips on assessment!






For the record, that is not a peace sign K lays on A at the end of this short video, but bunny ears. Hop to it, sis!

    I love this! I always have to remind myself to sit up properly, whether it’s at the computer, on the bus on the way to work, or my posture in general.

    Great post,

    Hey Johnny, thanks. I sit at a desk way more now than I used to, and I’ve discovered how easy it is to slouch. But it actually hurts. So I’m all for good posture.

    Very interesting! I’m loving these, looking forward to Part 4.

    Now, what might account for asymmetrical posture? Is it a habit? A result of maybe a sore or injured limb, joint, etc? Learned?

    I’m following along and enjoying your posture series. I think it’s something people want to know about. Now I’m curious what you ladies will do after all the assessing and to see the corrective measures. I’m always interested in getting someone else’s perspective. Keep up the good work.

      Well, I’m hoping I can poke Kymberly between the shoulder blades, but we’ll probably show something less annoying for the corrective measures. Thanks so much for the encouragement!
