I've found that very helpful for correcting some flaws in my bike fit and posture.

Because of old and more recent injuries (neck, back and shoulder) I was tending to hunch up my shoulders, tip my head to one side while riding, etc. Getting back into physical therapy for a couple of months helped as well.

+1 ...plenty of decent tutorials.
