Thing you already know but conveniently forget: Your desk job is silently killing you. Sure, there's the increased risk of cancer, obesity, and heart disease, but there's also the heightened likelihood that your computer situation is turning you into the Hunchback of Corporate HQ.
Angela Leigh, the ACE and AFAA accredited program manager at NYC's Pure Yoga, notes that bad posture from long periods of slouching in a chair often means that people are developing upper crossed syndrome and tight hip flexors (in plain English: a weakened core, overstretched back muscles, decreased spinal flexibility, and overall back and neck pain).
So unless you're investing in a standing/treadmill desk or switching careers for good, Leigh says the best short-term solution for improving posture is trying these 10 yoga poses. Namaste.
