Walking uphill and against the wind

It certainly is breezy at the moment and this morning I was walking straight into the wind and up a steep hill on

the Downs with my 2 dogs. Both walking into the wind and up a hill makes you want to lean forwards - this only makes walking more difficult. Next time you are walking up a hill just try to stay upright - you could think of sending your head up over the hill. When you lean forwards you are taking your body out of good alignment and therefore making your back muscles work harder. If you stay upright then your legs do the work of carrying you over the hill and your back won't get so tense. The hills of Lewes and the South Downs and great places to do some Alexander walking. Let me know how you get on.
