The simple exercise of squeezing a Posture Block can stretch your glutes, hamstrings, and back muscles while activating your core and pelvic floor muscles. Additionally, by squeezing the Posture Block, the groins' lymph nodes become activated, stimulating lymphatic drainage in the body and promoting optimum blood and lymphatic fluid flow. The Posture Block can be used for standing, sitting, kneeling, and lying down exercise positions with the ultimate goal of bringing symmetry and balance to the body through lengthening, flexing, strengthening, and realigning the spine and skeletal joints.

By exerting pressure on a Posture Block, between your knees, your inner thigh muscles (hip adductors) produce hip rotation that activates your psoas muscles (the deep muscles extending from the sides of the spine to the femur), helping to unlock the sacrum, lengthen the spine, and improve stability in the hips and pelvis.
