People with good posture not only look more attractive, but the proper position of your spine also helps your back stay healthy and improves circulation and breathing. Even if you have no serious distortions, your spine often experiences extended loads and needs relaxation after long periods of sitting down.
To help those who care about their posture, we found these four exercises that are certain to reduce tension and strengthen your back muscles.
Sukhasana (easy pose).
Adho Mukha svanasana (’downward-facing dog’).
Straightening the spine
When you sit on a chair, your knees should sit above your ankles, bent at 90 degrees. Your back should be straight, stomach pulled in, chest opened up, and your shoulder blades squeezed together and down. Do not bend at the waist. It’s hard to keep your posture like this for a long time, but if you remember to sit straight from time to time during the day, you will develop this very useful habit soon enough.
