    This is a great exercise to keep the shoulders pulled back and down. When we’re hunched over our phones or desks our shoulders become rounded and hunched. Doing this exercise regularly will train the shoulders to align backwards.

    This exercise gets your back stretched out and allows your spine to curve inwards gently pulling it into alignment. If your posture is bad then this stretch will feel good and relieve any back pain you may have as a result.

    When it comes to bad posture, it’s really important to target your back muscles and strengthen them to prevent an aching back. This move will help with the lower and upper back as well as stretching your chest out and working your stomach and abs.

    This twist is great for the spine and lower back. It’s a gentle stretch that works all the way from the bottom of the spine up to your neck relieving any stress caused by bad posture.

    This is a wonderful pose not only because it stretches out your back and spine but also creates a deep stretch in your hips, stomach and abdominal region. It allows your back to straighten out and relieve stress around the shoulders.

    Rounded shoulders is one of the most common signs of bad posture. This exercise can be done anywhere you can find a doorway and allows you to stretch out your shoulders. Do one shoulder at a time or spread your arms to either side of the door frame and do one long deep stretch.
