Well, you can use "kamae" in the sense of "posture" if the sense of the usage is "take an aggressive posture" - "take an aggressive stance".
Kamae does not have to be aggressive.

OTOH, you wouldn't normally use it in the sense of the shape of your back or "I have lousy posture".

They're not interchangeable.

Best,

Yes you would, the shape of your back could be bad kamae.
