Better Posture

You get better posture with active abs support and good mobility of the back.


  1. Lying Back Stretch

    Lie on your back with your lower back into the floor, round the back and hug your legs. Move your body a little in the position, it feels normally more comfortable than holding the stretch completely static. Breathe a few deep breaths and feel your back muscles relax. Relax also in the shoulders area and neck. Breathe and relax and extend your spine.

  2. Standing Position

    Stand strong with your feet placed hip width apart and your toes slightly outward. Have soft knees and a neutral lumbar. Keep your head up and remember that your neck is an extension of the spine. Lift shoulders up - move them backwards - lower and relax. Tighten the abdominal support (also called abs control) by pulling your belly button toward your spine. Your breathing will help to activate your abs muscles, work with powerful exhalations, imagine you "blowing the trumpet" or sounding letter "S" aloud. Keep back straight. To correct spine position - stand up straight and try to make yourself as tal as possible, a few centimeters taller. Relax but keep your strong posture.
