What's in a Pose?

pageant pose

Let's be real...if you have ever competed in a pageant (or even practiced for one), you may have practiced or done some of the body poses...and they are weeeeiiiirrrddddd...

My hips go where?  My toes do what? I have to do this AND flex my leg plus hold in my abs all while smiling, twisting, sticking "the girls" out, and acting like it ain't no big thing?

Well, when it comes to posing and body language, it turns out there is much more to the equation than what we may think.  Check out this TED TALK about posing, body language, and think about how you can use these practices, not only before you compete on stage or in interview, but in everyday life!

Cheers to the most beYOUtiful you!
