10 Effective Exercises to improve your posture

Child's Pose

This yoga pose stretches the hips, thighs, and ankles while lengthening the spine and relaxing the shoulders 

Begin by kneeling on the floor with your toes together and knees hip-width apart. Sit back on your heels and rest your torso between your thighs 

Extend your arms out in front of you with your palms facing down. Rest your forehead on the floor and breathe deeply for 30 seconds to 1 minute 

Shoulder Blade Squeeze

This exercise strengthens the upper back muscles that help to pull your shoulders back and down.

Sit or stand with a tall spine and your core engaged. Gently squeeze your shoulder blades together without hunching your shoulders. Hold for a few seconds, then release. Repeat 10-15 times.

Chest Opener Stretch

This stretch helps to open up the chest muscles that can become tight from hunching forward.

Stand or sit tall with your arms overhead. Interlace your fingers behind your back and gently press your palms together. Hold for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
