Up With GravitySM is a simple, effective and time-tested method for using the gravitational force as nature intended – as a help, not a hindrance.
Gravity is often considered a source of limitation and discomfort. You can use the Up With GravitySM process to learn how to use gravity to improve your posture and bring greater freedom and comfort into your life.

I was both thrilled and amazed to learn that I had the power to change my being so profoundly. Thank you Robert! – Becky Koch, Research Chemist, New York, NY
As a teacher of the Alexander Technique I find the Up With Gravity process incredibly helpful in allowing both me and my students to make quick improvements in posture and coordination. I now incorporate it into my Alexander Technique classes, and usually introduce the ideas in the first or second lesson, enabling my students to immediately have a way of directing their own posture and movement in a holistic and natural way. If you would like to improve your posture, I highly recommend you try Up With Gravity. – Imogen Ragone, Wilmington, DE
At will, I can walk with a lighter step these days. I use my center of gravity whenever I start to feel heavy, or pulled into myself. – Peter Ferguson, Guitarist, Toronto, Canada
My Dad showed me the how to use the arrow, and I showed some of my friends and now we all use it. – Angela Ferguson, age 11, Peter’s daughter.
Robert, I just finished teaching a lesson to someone I recommended your site to last week. It was right on topic, and I knew he’d connect to it, which he did. I asked him about it at the beginning of the lesson, and he had worked with it all last week. He’s a “mathematics guy”, and he very much appreciated the logic and the self-exercises, which he put into practice and said were great. He said it was “amazing” how much difference it made to think this way. He loved the idea of lifting the gravity line up. He had played with walking and sitting, and moving the line, and found it REALLY helped. I’m so grateful to have this additional tool, and thank you again very much for putting the time and energy–and creative thought!–into this. – Jennifer Roig-Francoli, Alexander Technique teacher in Cincinnati, Ohio
I’ve been playing with these ideas today when walking around the house. My habit is to walk fast, pushing myself forward. Using my centre of gravity while moving helped me to find my natural, more comfortable pace. Thanks for sharing your work, very useful. – Jacek Kaleta, Alexander Technique teacher trainee, London, England
