5 Moves for Positively Radiant Posture

By Katrina Scott on
Karena Katrina Posture Exercises January was all about showing ourselves love. And it doesn’t have to stop there! One of our favorite ways to do just that — any time of year — takes just one second of your day. Try it with us right now: Roll your shoulders back, open up your chest, and shine your light to the world! ✨ We’re talking about posture. Beyond helping you stand taller and prouder, studies show that practicing good posture can actually reduce stress, boost your confidence, and kick your energy up a notch. Great posture also helps protect you from pain and misalignment in other areas of your body, like your neck, shoulders, hips, and knees. And when your alignment is on point, you’ll be more likely to reach your fitness goals — whether that’s getting faster, stronger, or improving your yoga practice.   If perfect posture doesn’t come naturally, don’t worry! That just means it’s time to show your back, booty, and core a little extra love. Those are the muscles that will pull your shoulders down and back, support your spine, and get you standing tall and proud! Here are a few of our favorite posture-promoting exercises to add to your Studio Tone It Up routine a couple times a week. (Or do ‘em at your desk when you feel that spine start to slump!)  Be sure to download the Tone It Up app for more routines to open your heart and work those posture muscles. Remember: You are so beautiful inside and out. It’s time to radiate that to the world!
