Sitting Tips To Improve Your Posture and Lengthen Your Spine

Hey, Its Allyson and Alayna… We are continuing our exercises from the car-desk series. We learned about the steering wheel, pulling the thumbs out and you saw the shoulder blade circles in the back. This time I want to show you another thing you can do sitting… pushing your sits bones (that you sit on) down into the chair, the bleachers, your desk chair or wherever you are… and at the same time lengthen the spine by reaching out of the crown of the head. You can see her come up, and she just got another half inch longer in her spine… somebody with already good posture.

The tip is to just sit up straight and get that spine nice and straight.

So another pretty simple thing to do when you’re sitting is you can mix these up and see what feels best to you… try them all from the series and Continue doing the ones that feel the best to you. One day, this (sitting tall and lengthening the spine) is gonna feel great. The next day you need some work in your shoulders (pulling your thumbs and elbows away on the steering wheel). We’ve got a lot more to do as well…

But that’s a start to play with, be mindful of how you’re sitting and notice how you feel with these exercises.
