Nine simple asanas will help you correct your posture. They stretch the first muscle group and strengthen the second. You can do this complex up to three times a week, taking at least one-day breaks.
Prepare a mat, yoga strap (or towel), and two support blocks to begin doing the slouching yoga asana complex for correct posture.
Cobra Pose – 5 breaths in and out
One of the first signs of poor posture is a stoop caused by a pinched chest and a constantly bowed head. This asana straightens the shoulders and neck and strengthens the whole back.
- Lie on your stomach with your toes extended. Place your forehead on the mat and stretch your neck.
- With your elbows bent, place your palms on the mat near your chest.
- Resting the front of your feet on the floor, lift your head and chest as you inhale. Lift your palms and knees off the rug.
- Flatten your shoulder blades. Take 5 slow breaths in and out. On the last exhale, get out of the position.
