The story of Aston Kinetics always starts with Judith Aston.

Her curiosity began in the form of annoying the adults in her childhood with the frequency of "why," but evolved into utilizing the "why" filter on most tasks in life. 

When told, "This is the correct posture," as she observed, she asked, "Why?"

From the early 1960's to the beginning of 1970, she was troubled by the tension she observed when people held good posture. By the mid 70s, she had a "Eureka!" moment that changed everything, and a new postural model emerged.

This is why Judith Aston shares, creates, and teaches. 

People ask us what we do all the time, but the "why" we do what we do is even more compelling. Aston Kinetics has always been in touch with the answer to the question "why." It's a very important thing to remember when emphasis is always given to "what."

Simon Sinek has a lot of fascinating things to say about successful people in history. It's an inspiring piece on how to locate purpose and understand your "why." (Click on the image to watch Simon Sinek's Ted Talk "How Great Leaders Inspire Action.")

Have you ever asked yourself "why" you do what you do?
