Yoga Poses to Improve Posture
Are you slouching over a computer more than you'd like to admit lately? Yeah, me too. Enjoy these six yoga poses that help reverse the slouching pattern and improve your posture!
Stand firm and strong, have a slight bend in your knees, roll your shoulders down your back and rotate those pinkies forward.
Pull your knee into your chest first (enjoy that stretch), let it fall where it may (no forcing, you can even prop with 2 blocks under your knee and ankle), keep both shoulder blades on your mat and BREATHE.
Lay face down on your mat, take your arm out to a “T,” use your other hand to guide your body slowly onto your side, kickstand your top leg if it feels good.
Set up two blocks...one for your head and one for your spine between your shoulder blades, surrender and breathe, relaxing your shoulders towards the mat on your exhales.
Cow Face Arms
Grab a strap or a towel, keep your chest lifted and tall, breathe!
Supported Legs up the Wall
There are no walls in the forest...but find one, put a hip next to the wall, slowly swing your legs up, feel your sit bone press against your floorboard, place a block under your lower back, rest here as long as time allows!
Practice these six good posture yoga poses every day (or whenever your schedule allows!) to open your shoulders and improve your posture over time! Interested in a 1-on-1 Christ-centered yoga class to guide you? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
