The Body Awake
About This Show
The Body Awake is a podcast for people interested in health and the human body, and in having a conversation beyond the body as merely a machine.
It's about what we're made of, how we move, how illness, injury and healing happen, and what we can do with that information to live better lives.

Stack Your Bones & Posture Beyond Effort with Ruthie Fraser — ep 25
"Posture" is such a loaded word for so many of us. It often evokes a sense of not "doing it right" —> lazy shoulders, computer slouch, etc. This kind of thinking might be useful in some circumstances, but in many people it just adds another layer of guilt — and yes, tension — onto an already tense situation. I love how Ruthie breaks down the infinitely expansive terrain of "inhabit your body" into little bite sized nuggets. She does it in her book Stack Your Bones, and with us on the show. I so enjoyed this one, and hope you do too :)
