In the age of the computer, nearly everyone spends a portion of their day hunched over some form of computer (laptop, tablet or smart-phone), resulting in increasingly bad posture.
The dead giveaway of poor posture, often the result of the stresses and strains of daily life, is rounded shoulders. When we hold ourselves this way, our upper back hunches, lifting the shoulders toward the ears, and our chest collapses, narrowing the space between the collarbones. All of this can lead to the head jutting forward, which creates compression and tightening in the neck. This condition creates the potential for any number of physical ailments, including chronic headaches, back pain, and breathing difficulties.
Using the Yoga Wall, we''ll explore shoulder stretches that focus on drawing the shoulders down the back and backbends that open and lift the heart area.
