Yoga Therapy for Posture Improvement
Do you have aches and pains all over your body? Your posture might be the reason.
What is the correct posture? Ideally you want the skeletal structure to aligned vertically, so that when you are standing, your ears, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles will come in one vertical line. This will give the maximum support to the whole body, not putting any unnecessary pressure on the muscles. When the body comes away from that vertical line, either the adjacent supporting muscles will have to hold it from falling (because of gravity) and will be constantly in strain, or the rest of the body will compensate by pulling in the opposite direction (if the head is forward the hips will move back to balance the body, but gravity will still work downwards putting pressure on the spine and knees.) This can and will create achy joints and or muscles.
Some of the effects of the poor postures are lower back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, inefficient breathing, change in spine curvature (the spine is designed to absorb shock, if its normal structure changes then it might not work effectively).
We have designed sequence to help correct your posture and help you to keep your spine healthy. This is can also be used for people with good posture, to help support the back and prevent future injury
