Could the Lumo Lift be used to support Alexander Technique Students?
According to the Lumo Lift marketing department, “Lift was built based on scientific research showing that when you hold yourself in an upright and open position, you actually get a surge of hormones that make you feel and become more powerful.”
I bolded the word “hold“, because anyone who has tried holding themselves in good posture knows how uncomfortable this is. Within minutes, you are back to the comfy relief of slumping. Take a look at the models in the Lumo Lift video:
Did you notice that they are all arching their backs to achieve their new “good” posture?
But what if there’s an effortless way towards good posture?
Yes, it’s called the Alexander Technique. Alexander Technique students learn how to change their posture by thinking. And, I think the Lumo Lift could be a great biofeedback support for Alexander Technique students.
What if every time you crunched over your cell phone, you got a little buzz? What if instead of arching your back and holding yourself upright, you stopped and thought:
“I have time,”
“Head floating up,”
“I don’t have to pick up my phone!”
What if you had learned in Alexander Technique lessons how to turn these pleasant thoughts into real physical changes?
That could amount to an extra 1,500 practice sessions per week*.
You might find that you were learning how to “Stand Tall and Feel Great,” effortlessly.
