Kathleen Porter originally trained as a massage therapist and then taught yoga for many years before being introduced to concepts of natural alignment more than twenty years ago. This led to her extensive travel to countries where it is common for women, and sometimes children, to carry heavy loads on their heads, where she was able to observe the mechanical use of their bodies in motion and to interview many of them. Since that time, she has written several books, including Natural Posture for Pain-Free Living: ThePractice of Mindful Alignment, and her recently released book, Healthy Posture for Babiesand Children.
Kathleen has taught principles of natural alignment through the University of Hawaii at Hilo, the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, and offers classes and workshops around the country. She is currently creating an online program of video tutorials that will make this information available to anyone, anywhere. She resides in Portland, where she is director of the Centerfor Natural Alignment. Contact:
