Methode Naturelle vs. Posture
« on: March 31, 2010, 07:41:38 PM »
So, I have looked everywhere on this huge database of MN information.
I have done a lot of searching, but I can't seem to find and answer to one of my questions.

My question is: Is the proper posture shown in MN the way your posture should be all the time? Ex: Walking, running, sitting etc?
What i'm going off of is my this link: http://www.americanparkour.com/MethodeNaturelle.pdf (a translated form)
Is this how to correct posture or how your posture should look all the time?
If it is not showing correct posture for daily activities Walking, running etc, does anyone know a link to a MN perspective on proper posture?

Thank you for the help.

The upright position is the starting point for most of the basic learning exercises and the walking exercises. I don't see it stressed anywhere else. Maybe in lifting.

I'm trying to remember a quote [from Erwan?]. Found it :D

"if you read Hebert, not just a few pages or one book, you would notice that he underlines the necessity of fighting what he calls a "military rigidity" or stiffness. Still, archive photos often display a technical style that is lacking naturalness, but it was his concern though to avoid it. "
