Feel your bones. Get grounded. Relax. Learn to do less.

Your body responds to events and stresses in your life: Your back may tense up, shoulders slouch forward, hips veer off to the right or left. Slowly, without noticing, you shift out of balance.

Now, in Stack Your Bones, movement teacher Ruthie Fraser helps you unwind and realign through 100 simple lessons in Structural Integration. By becoming more aware of your body—its habits, structure, and needs—you can relieve pain and move with ease once again.

Learn to Find Your Feet, Root and Expand, Make It Simple, Vary Your Route, Tackle the Imbalances, and 95 other ways to befriend your body!
