     I struggled with stiffness          and pain until I was almost       50 years old.

Then I learned how to inhabit my body in a naturally aligned way, without any stretching or "exercising"     other than remaining active.

In the thirty years since then, I've shared these principles of innate human alignment with thousands of people who have discovered how to overcome stiffness, pain, and many other health issues. 

I can help you learn this, too!


I'm Kathleen Porter


Truly good posture is not what we've been taught.

It's easy, relaxed, and pain-free.

It's what healthy babies and toddlers discover all on their own. It's the human body's design. 

It can rescue you, once and for all, from experiencing recurring stiffness and pain.

As a yoga teacher and massage therapist many years ago, I still  experienced chronic pain in my body. 

I freed myself of pain and became more flexible and genuinely strong when I stopped stretching and working out. Instead, I inhabited my body according to¬†its innate design‚ÄĒthe way all¬†well-developing toddlers do.

This approach really works‚ÄĒand I can show you how it's done!

"As a family physician treating my share of patients with back pain, neck pain, osteoporosis and dysfunctional labor . . .  Kathleen's work, to me, has been personally transformative."

"Kathleen's Alignment Basics workshop changed my life! At 67, I was experiencing neck, shoulder, and knee pain that worsened with age and seemed chronic. The pain melted away, along with what felt like a lifetime‚Äôs worth of stored tension. I began performing life‚Äôs daily activities‚ÄĒbending, stooping, climbing stairs, reading in bed‚ÄĒin total comfort again. Thank you, Kathleen!"

"My husband is thrilled that I don’t bug him for neck massages every day like I used to. Since learning how to stack up my bones, a lot of tension that I experienced on a daily basis is gone! And whenever I start getting tense or sore, I just stop and take the time to notice where I’ve gone astray and can almost always bring myself back to being comfortable again. Thank you many times over!"

Lynnette Holzer

"Just the sleeping exercises alone have helped so much. I wake up in the morning with no neck pain! Even my regular headaches have been helped by this new way of sleeping. On top of that, my knock knees (not as knocked anymore!) don’t hurt now when I walk down steps and my back feels better. If I have to stand for a long time, I can do it without my back hurting."

J.D. Goldman

"I have experienced a number of body work modalities but in this workshop I learned numerous new and/or better ways to maintain a healthy musculo-skeletal system into old age. I highly recommend this workshop for everyone."

Ann Ostling

"I signed up for this workshop because in spite of a lengthy yoga practice I was still in pain. Kathleen seemed to have a new approach, so I signed on. This has been the most valuable workshop I have ever taken, and I hope it will be repeated next year. Everything immediately made sense and I have been feeling an enormous release from my chronic pain."

Our bones are the framework of support for our bodies, much like the wall studs and beams of a house. Yet the alignment of the skeleton along the vertical axis of gravity is largely overlooked today, even by fitness experts and yoga teachers. In a culture of cocked hips, sauntering models, and slouching TV watchers, where ‚Äúchin up, shoulders back, stomach in‚ÄĚ is believed to be good posture, we have forgotten what healthy alignment looks and feels like‚ÄĒleading to chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain for millions. This book presents the natural alternative that it provides.
