Accepting your posture

My voice coach told me that the thing with postures is that there's the ideal straight and balanced one, and the one we have - and that we just got to work with the latter.
It got me thinking, as I always try to straighten myself and pull my shoulders back. Maybe letting people come to you means using all our flaws on stage? Working with them, from them?

One of my former directors once told me: Alexanders technique students are boring because throughout their studies and for 5 years after that, all they do is with the alexanders technique principles in mind. they will sit on a stool thinking of their posture, and thus become very boring to watch.
