But did you know that the exercise can also work wonders for your posture (which some might say, could better your life overall)? It’s amazing what all those chest-opening asanas can do to combat the damage we do hunched over our devices, and today, Kate Waitzkin is here with her posture prescription. Click through for a 10 minute sequence to ward off that dreaded computer slouch.

    I started yoga about a month ago on a regular basis and I am loving the progress I can already feel. Posture is a huge goal of mine as I have spent many a year bent over, leaning on side units and generally doing nothing for my general health. Definitely going to incorporate these moves into my sequences.

  2. Thanks for these suggestions! I’ve tried many of them in class, but never thought to associate many of them with posture improvement. Love that supported heart opener at the beginning of a practice.

    Wow the Jet pack is a game changer! I’ve never had great posture and wearing that strap just around the house or while do graphic design work is SO helpful!
