We live in a forward facing world – sitting behind computers, driving in cars, preparing dinner, carrying children – all of which wreaks havoc on posture. Over time the spine becomes curved, our shoulders round forward and we are moving about the world with compromised spinal alignment (or bad posture). Poor posture has been linked with lower energy levels, depression and body aches and pains. Good posture, on the other hand, can make us look taller, appear thinner and feel more confident.
What is the link between yoga and improved posture?
Just like our bad habits developed over time, our good habits take time to build back up as well. Practicing yoga a few times per week is an easy and healthy way to improve your posture. People who stand tall look more confident, appear thinner, and feel energized.
