According to the American Heart Association, sedentary jobs have increased by 83% since 1950. That statistic paints a concerning picture about the activity levels of most Americans. It also implies that many of us are working in jobs that can lead to bad posture, which in turn can cause pain and immobility.
No matter what your job or day-to-day routine looks like, we can all stand to benefit from better posture. Through practicing certain asanas, your yoga practice can help you correct pain caused by imbalances and form better postural habits.
