Correct Your Posture With Yoga
Posture is critical to a healthy human. You may ask, “Why?”
We have all grown up being admonished at some point or another about our posture. Posture is the body’s correct alignment and positioning of muscles, ligaments and joints with respect to the gravitational force in all body positions, whether it is standing, sitting or lying down, so that the body remains in perfect balance, and no part is stressed. When body is correctly balanced and positioned, it is at ease. When posture is good and you use your weight distribution correctly every action the body takes – walking, sitting, running, jumping, skipping, hiking or anything else – is also in harmony. The spine functions well, the internal organs function optimally and there is an overall feeling of well-being in the entire body.
