Chair Yoga for Good Posture

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Heard from a dear Spark Friend worried about her posture. Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to make a presentation at the National Council on Aging's annual conference. Chose Posture as my topic, as it is often overlooked and is so important!

Will try to post conference notes on this site, but in the meantime, here is a Yoga pose that wil stretch and elongate the spine. Imagine a string tied to the top of your head, pulling you towards the heavens while keeping your heels firmly on the floor.

I love this one.

Stay strong (and straight)

    Very helpful video. Thanks Anne.
This is definitely something that can be adapted to our own levels of flexibility (or inflexibility, in my case).

Thank you so much for this particular video. I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis (high grade) and this feels so good when I do it. My spinal cord is being squeezed right at the tail bone, and is very painful, so I am grateful to add this to my PT exercises.
