I've done the "power woman" stand for years in business prior to important meetings not realizing what it was doing. I think it works; I've been confident in my meetings and with dealing with various issues. Report
I'm performing at an open mic next week: it seems that The Performer is in order, and Wonder Woman wouldn't hurt either. I look forward to finding out the results. Report
Love this! I had my students watch Amy Cuddy's TED Talk in an interview workshop I taught.

I tried the two poses and they helped relieve the stress in my upper back. Thanks! Report
I'm looking for a job right now and I have found it extremely challenging this time around because I am turning 60 next month and the downtown Boston area seems really "youth-oriented" with respect to office support (my lifelong profession). I will try these poses, especially before interviews. Thanks! Report
I just returned from a Women's Workshop and the health speaker mentioned the first pose as well. It also relives tension and leaves you with a take charge attitude, SparkFriends. Report
