3 Yoga Moves to Quickly Improve Posture & Flexibility

Over the last year, I’ve been seeing a chiropractor to correct some lower back and hip issues. Today Stayfree has sponsored our post and has encouraged me to share some ways I’ve been able to benefit from yoga. My chiropractor instructed me do was a prescribed set of daily yoga exercises to enhance flexibility and strengthen my core. I wasn’t convinced at first that such small movements would change much but I have seen amazing improvement. Especially when I do them on a regular basis.yoga moves The 3 recommended poses my chiro recommended were easy to do and didn’t require a ton of space. This meant I could practice them easily throughout the day during a work break or when I traveled. I could tell a difference in my sleep and less tightness in my lower back within just a couple of weeks. Curious to know which ones they were? Ok, I’ll share 🙂

3 Yoga Moves to Quickly Improve Posture & Flexibility

1. Dog Tilt Pose

2. Balancing TableTop

3. Plank /Low plank

I was amazed at how quickly my posture improved and my flexibility increased. I am still visiting my chiropractor but less frequently and am able to schedule more time in between visits now. Because I have really been able to appreciate how yoga helps the whole body I wanted to add other poses in too. Last week I shared the Stayfree promotion in partnership with Gaiam TV. I’ve been able to access FREE online yoga classes for 30 days- it’s still going on! You  can sign up until March 12, 2015 (click here for more info!) I really like that that it has examples & explanations of each pose. Since I’m training for a half marathon coming up soon adding in strength and flexibility really so important.

Do you practice yoga? At home or in a class? What is your favorite pose?

  13. I NEED to do yoga, it stretches out my body and makes me more flexible and less in pain, but I somehow don’t get around to it. I keep meaning to get up early to do it. My favorite is the standing forward bend. It does wonders for my back…elongates my spine.

  14. It’s amazing how something simple as a yoga pose can be such a powerful tool in helping our bodies! I have practiced yoga in the past (I really should get back to it!) and it helped me feel amazing! More limber and flexible, energized, confident. I can’t wait until the warmer weather hits so I can go outside and practice 🙂

  17. I love that you saw results so quickly with your posture. I always think I’m not slouching, but if I make a deliberate effort to sit straight, find that I am by default. I could probably benefit from this, or just Yoga even, in general.

  18. I didn’t know that the plank could help with flexibility. I guess it is just one more reason to do that “dreaded” pose. 😉
