Did you know that yoga can be a great way to correct and realign your posture?
These days, so many people suffer from poor posture due to the fact that many sit hunched over their computers and cell phones the majority of the day. The longer you sit and stay immobile, the more your posture will be affected.
Poor posture can cause a lot of pain for a variety of reasons. If you round your back too far or straighten it too much, the discs in your back can become compressed by your vertebrae. These discs will then be at risk of herniation.
You can see why proper posture is so important, and it is troubling that the majority of us suffer from incorrect postural alignment.
You can use yoga poses to strengthen your spine and promote better alignment while making you more mindful of your posture and how you are holding it.
We recommend using poses like puppy’s pose and mountain pose for correct posture. Both of these poses help to bring your awareness to the back of the body and how you hold yourself up.
