If you’re prone to constant neck and back pain, the most common reason could be a poor posture. One of the main reasons for bad posture is sitting at a desk to long which is what many of us are compelled to do during working hours. Performing Yoga to improve posture is a simple and effective way to regain health and have an erect posture free from all pain.
Improving your posture from yoga also contributes to flexibility because it requires you to stretch your spine and back gently while opening up your shoulders and chest. Yoga strengthens your core areas and keeps you fit.
