Adding in another reason to focus on movement daily 💁🏼‍♀️

If you spend long hours hunched over a desk or have succumbed to the slouching effects of modern day technology, incorporating posture-improving exercises into your routine can make a significant difference. 

Here are our go-to's for a more confident you:


Planks: Start in a push-up position with your arms straight, Lower your forearms to the ground, keeping your body in a straight line. Hold for 30 seconds to a minute, engaging your core muscles.

Why: Planks strengthen core muscles, shoulders, and back. Promotes a neutral spine and improves overall stability.


Bridges: Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips towards the ceiling, forming a straight line from shoulders to knees. Squeeze your glutes at the top and hold for a few seconds.

Why: Bridges activate your glutes and lower back muscles. Helps counteract the effects of prolonged sitting.


Cat-Cow Stretch: Start on your hands and knees in a tabletop position. Inhale, arch your back, and lift your head and tailbone (Cow). Exhale, round your spine, tuck your chin, and draw your belly button to your spine (Cat).

Why: Cat-Cow stretches promote spinal flexibility. Stretches and strengthens the muscles along the spine.


Child's Pose: Start in a kneeling position with your toes together and knees apart. Sit back on your heels, reaching your arms forward on the ground. Relax your forehead to the mat and breathe deeply.

Why: Child's pose stretches and releases tension in the back, shoulders, and neck. Relieves stress and promotes relaxation.
