Regardless of why, living with poor posture can result in an increased risk of developing a range of issues. This could be a higher chance of athletic injury, or even a restricted lung capacity.
Whatever the cause, studies have found that movement can be the best solution for easing aching muscles. Yoga is one way you can strengthen, stretch and regularly move your joints and muscles.
But what poses are best for poor posture?
Poor posture can often derive from a weakened core. If you strengthen your core, you will be able to support the lengthening of your spine and open your shoulders better. The plank pose is effective in strengthening the core, shoulders and glutes.
