Egoscue – Part 3 of 4 (static back and the windmill)

In this episode we jump right into two of the “E-sices” that were prescribed to me in my Egoscue menu.

Pay close attention to the subtleties of Paul’s instructions in each of the positions… though they may seem insignificant , they make a HUGE difference.

Remember… don’t just watch… DO!

Try these out for yourself and share your experiences in the comment section.

Even though this is only a small part of my program, you can feel a big difference by just taking 5 minutes out of (or into) your day to benefit from just these two movements…

Here’s What To Do Next

1.  Do these e-sices Right Now.. (seriously, do them right now)

2.  Share your experience of how you felt before, during, and after the e-sice.  The more peeps that contribute the better for everyone.

3.  Share this with anyone who can use a nice break from sitting at their desk all day long by click the Facebook and Twitter Buttons below.

4.  Have the best day ever.

Dave :)

PS:  Several people have been asking me are there any resources online regarding how to fix your back pain through body structure.  Though for many  people it probably won’t match a personal 1 on 1 session at a walk in Egoscue clinic, it is definitely an alternative that seems to be aligned* with the philosophy.

These two exercises are GREAT! Thank you so much for sharing. I work at a desk/computer allllll day long. I’m also a cancer survivor who – as of 5 years ago had lost all muscle. Between those two things I have developed some bad habits and back and shoulder issues. I go to a chiropractor regularly, and I got my muscle back by riding my horse, but excursuses like this have really helped to repair my back and shoulder issues. I also now do gyrotonics and/or gyrokenesis sessions. Awesome stuff.
OH – of course I drink Kombucha regularly too!

Please send me ALL info on the program. I need it desperately!

hi Roxie,

If you’d like to learn more about how to get some help through Egoscue, go to our web site at You’ll see a box where you can input your zip code and find the clinic nearest you. My suggestion would be to simply call them and tell them your situation and what your goals are, what you’re trying to achieve. They’ll be happy to answer your questions and go through some options for how you can start making this better right now.

Full disclosure: I’m the clinic director of the Egoscue clinic in Austin, TX. We encourage people to call who need some info, even if it’s just recommendations for how to best utilize one of Pete Egoscue’s books.

I wish you well!

Thanks Dave,
I have had the book for a couple of years. I bought it for my husband who has bad back problems. I started doing the e-cises myself after being told I had worn the lateral cartiledge away on both surfaces of my knee. I figure that shouldn’t happen if you are aligned properly. So I am trying to do some every day but it is hard to know which ones are most important. I see from your video that I have been doing the static back wrong, I had a rolled up towel under my low back and neck. It is the isolated hip flexor lifts that you use the towels. We are moving to the Santa Monica area and I will be in to see Paul ASAP. Thanks
