Here are some yoga poses that can help improve posture:
Mountain Pose (Tadasana): Stand with feet hip-width apart and press evenly through both feet. Engage the core muscles and lift the chest, rolling the shoulders back and down.
Tree Pose (Vrksasana): Stand with feet hip-width apart, shift weight onto one foot, and lift the other to rest against the opposite thigh. Keep the standing leg strong and engage the core muscles to maintain balance.
Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana): Start on hands and knees, with wrists directly under shoulders and knees under hips. Press into the hands and lift the hips, straightening the arms and legs into an inverted V-shape.
Cat-Cow Pose (Marjaryasana-Bitilasana): Start on hands and knees, with wrists directly under shoulders and knees under hips. Inhale, arch the spine and lift the head and tailbone for the cow pose. Exhale, round the spine, and tuck the chin for a cat pose.
Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II): From Mountain pose, step one foot back and turn it out to a 90-degree angle. Bend the front knee, keeping it directly over the ankle, and extend the arms to the sides at shoulder height.
Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana): Lie face down on the mat, with hands under shoulders and elbows close to the body. Inhale, pressing into the hands to lift the chest and gaze upward.
Child’s Pose (Balasana): Start on hands and knees, then bring the hips back to rest on the heels and stretch the arms forward. Rest the forehead on the mat.
Remember to focus on breathing deeply and mindfully throughout each pose. Consistent practice of these poses can help to improve posture and promote overall physical and mental well-being.
