Yoga for Bad Posture and Back Pain

Sitting at my desk for long periods of time, I tend toward bad posture. It doesn’t help that I’ve always been tall. For some reason being tall is, at times, an embarrassing thing for me and I’m overcome with the desire to hunch my shoulders and curve my back to be shorter.

Bad posture is painful. Not just painful to see in others but literally painful. At this very moment my back is killing me.

But there are ways to fix bad posture and help with back pain.

By the way, I apologize for the long infographic here. It’s really helpful though!

Yoga can be beneficial in helping people correct their posture. But, then, yoga seems to be helpful for everything in life.

There are tons of moves that help with back pain but these are simple and don’t require a whole lot of flexibility.

About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming a world-famous writer. I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and a POP Pilates instructor. I didn't think I'd succeed at that last one but I did it! I confronted my fears, dealt with things I didn't want to deal with, and completed the training! POP Pilates classes are coming soon to mid-Nebraska!
