I thought I would initially write a detailed anatomical post about the finer points of sitting. Frankly, this video demonstrates everything I would want to say, and more.
Katy Bowman, a fabulous and interesting lady in the realm of biomechanics, PFD (look it up. I'm not explaining it.), and general foot well being has made this hilarious video. The pelvis next to the human illuminates the fundamental basics of sitting-pelvic tilt. She's demonstrating how posterior pelvic tilt affects upper body alignment, specifically by enhancing rounding in the upper body.
Next time you sit-maybe even now, play around with your pelvic tilt and see how the relationship affects your spine, head, and how you hold your instrument (or play piano or sing or conduct).
