Well, I guess it is both.

Posture is more of a static thing, whereas gaining active mobility in the thoracic region is very important for things like overhead and front squatting (which aren't done in "normal" posture).

There are some thoracic glide videos on this guy's channel:

I second the Gokhale book. I hope to make it to her upcoming Tucson seminar in May.
