S2 Ep9: Are You Sitting Comfortably? - Saskia Griffiths

Oct 26, 04:00 AM
How much attention do you give to how you are sitting or standing right? How does your body feel? Are there any niggling areas of pain? Maybe you favour a certain position or stance because it just feels better for some reason.

This week on The Mojo Podcast it's about our posture; how we hold ourselves, how we sit, stand and walk. After breathing these are perhaps the most basic, unconscious actions we undertake daily but that can have huge impact on our mojo.

My superb guest is Saskia Griffiths - a posture coach - she is fascinated by our ability to accept and live with stress and pain. As she's learned more about the human body and its abilities, she's moved away from this belief and is committed to helping others do the same. It is not natural to live in pain. Saskia talks about how she collected many injuries breaking bones, pulling muscles, training and weightlifting in poor posture creating chronic pains before realizing there could be a way of moving herself out of them.

Her mojo journey involved discovering the Bowspring technique which was transforational for her personally and which she know teaches both in person and online. We met at her retreat space Casa del Karma in the north of Ibiza where she works with clients to recognise that 'the issues are in the tissues' and that when you change your posture, you can change your life.

This is a fascinating conversation and demonstrates how so much of ourselves and our bodies are connected - pain in one part of the body is often related to something or somewhere quite different.
Saskia also offers up some very practical tips for all of us sitting at desk at home right now and how to bring more mojo to your Zoom Room conversation by sitting in a more optimal way. She also gives me the once over, checking and adjusting my posture - which I've been way more conscious about since our conversation.
