Maya White on posture

PrimalCon 2010 Announcement: Sit, Stand and Walk Like Grok

The flapper age in the 1920s, the breakdown of kinesthetic transmission across generations with family members no longer living close to each other, and the poor design of most modern furniture have all contributed to the disastrous habit that most of us have of tucking the pelvis (curling our tails under us).

Is this criticism applicable to "classical" furniture as well? Traditional Chinese furniture is very straight and rigid -- does it preserve or hurt posture?
