Improve Posture

improve posture with exercise to stay active when aging

Posture exercise is the best self help technique to improve posture

Stronger posture helps back and neck pain, and also helps you feel better in general as you breathe deeper, reduce stress, and have more energy. People who regularly do corrective exercises report improvement with problems ranging from knee pain to headaches, and say they even feel and sometimes look, taller and thinner.

Young or old, athlete or couch potato, posture-strengthening exercises are an intelligent Life Habit for aging well. These exercises are based on contemporary bio-mechanical concepts blended with ancient yoga practices and wisdom. The goal is to become aware of posture as you strengthen posture and balance. StrongPosture® exercise can be done anywhere and does not require any expensive equipment. A flat wall is necessary as a reference for erect posture, and an exercise ball once you progress through the program.

To change your posture, you need to teach your body a new habit. “Straighten up and don’t slouch” doesn’t work. In order to change how you move, you need to adopt new habits to consciously train new patterns of motion, thereby retraining your body to move better unconsciously as well. Strengthening your posture with daily posture exercises as part of your regular physical activity for just 5 to 10 minutes a day will help you keep moving well as you age.
