This is the curve: Of the spine seen. From the side in terms of the natural sway of the lower back as well as in the neck. It is in the opposite direction of the roundness or kyphosis of the chest region or thoracic spine with the head balanced over the hips with these curves compensating each other to allow this perfect balancing act.
