Stretchsitting duration ?


I'm 19 year old guy & I don't have any back pain . I just want to improve my posture . 

I'm having some questions .

I sit in front of my computer whole day long , so should I sit whole day in the stretchsit position ? And for how many Days ?

&  how many exercises I should do per day before moving to next one ?

Hi Bob, 

Stretchsitting is therapeutic and gentle, yet very effective for creating length in your spine and putting you in a traction.  Therefore, there is really no such thing as "too much" stretchsitting.  I would suggest stretchsitting as often as possible.  If you feel like there are seated activities which require you to be a little more active, then you can alternate with Stacksitting.  The Gokhale Method is a way of positioning your body throughout the day-more of a lifestyle than a set of exercises.  Generally I suggest moving through the book over the course of about 6-8 weeks.
