Does yoga help improve posture?

Improves Posture

Doing yoga is a great way to improve your posture. When poses are done properly, they encourage correct body alignment – standing tall, shoulders over hips, knees over toes, etc. Additionally, inverted poses like headstands decompress the spine helping to lengthen it. Both the improvement in posture and the spinal decompression and alignment will have the added benefit of making you feel taller.

After a long day at the office, in which I know I slump in front of my computer and compress my spine, an evening yoga practice helps re-align and lengthen my spine and gets me nice and relaxed for bed. It's blissful!
