Polish your posture

These two superb side stretches will improve your posture in no time!

Like Comment

Many of us sit at our desks most of our working week. This position is a largely flexed forward position.

To improve our posture and feel more open it is vital we add movements such as extensions, rotations and side flexions to our daily healthy practices.

Here I show you two superb side stretches to promote better posture & neck/shoulder mobility.

I invite you to practice these either in the morning after your shower or evening just before bed. As you do the movements be sure to gently engage your abdominal muscles. Do 10-12 each side.

Let me know how you get on and what other parts of your body you would like stretches for in the comments below.

Are you new to exercise or healthy living? Not sure to start? Want to break down all those old excuses and barriers once and for all? Looking for gentle, supportive and nurturing expert support online?
