Awesome!  Clint Jones


Easy to grasp. Mary Pritchard


She is so knowledgeable! Love this course so far!  Teresa Wahmhoff 


All of Dr. Paula's courses are great -- she presents with superb emotion and great knowledge. thanks .. keep sending them to us. Michael Singer 


"This is great, I never thought that sitting posture in cars also matters as I have multiple pain points in my shoulder blades and painful neck muscles, so driving car for more than 30 minutes also contributed to elevate my pain. I will ask few question regarding sleeping as my neck is more painful and stiff when I wake up. Instructor seems knowledgeable with this topic. Great course and keep up the good work." Muhammad Ahsan Pervaiz


"Excellent information in short segments. Easy to understand." Carlyn Martin

Hi there, I'm Paula Moore and I've been teaching Udemy courses since September 2014, and in that short period of time, I've created 12 best-selling courses, with 12,000+ enrolled students and 100s of 5* reviews - we are having a blast!

The problem with most posture programs and gym workouts, is that they are taught by someone who has never examined a body (hands on), never taken or analyzed an x-ray of the spine and most 'instructors' have only a certificate of qualification and not a professional degree. This is a BIG PROBLEM.


I've been helping people correct their posture for 17 years and the biggest mistake I see fitness instructors make when addressing posture, is they use a functional approach (generic) to correct a structural problem. A functional approach focuses mainly on pain and symptoms and the outside of the body; but rarely has the ability to actual alter postural alignment, because the underlying cause of bad posture hasn't  been addressed – the structural alignment of the body and spine. And that's the  reason I left a successful private practice as a Chiropractor. I was frustrated by this approach to posture and health. I realized I could help more people, more effectively online. 


People with bad posture typically worry about looking unattractive. Is that you? They often develop early arthritis and premature aging and can reduce their  vital lung capacity by up to 30%. They want to be active but it hurts when they try. They have typically tried several different types of treatment and various exercise regimes but when they look in the mirror they see little difference. This is a BIG PROBLEM.
