Your excellent posture gives you energy and stamina for improving the quality of your life. Yoga teachers emphasize that it is impossible to make a healthful impression without perfect posture. Posture expresses to others “who you are” and shapes the function and structure of the nerve energy lifeline that is your spine. Research has shown posture to significantly affect the mental, structural, and chemical balance of the body and its organs. Posturally speaking standing is fundamental. It is the training and proving ground for a strong, healthy life from a well-balanced stress-free spine.
