Yoga is an important part of life, one that has the power to bring balance and a sense of calm, especially in the pandemic. Experts suggest you do yoga every day, for consistency brings results.

On the occasion of International Day of Yoga today, Grand Master Akshar, a philanthropist, spiritual master, lifestyle coach, yoga-preneur and author emphasises on maintaining a good posture and avoiding a hunchback.

Many of us have been working from home, and in the absence of an actual office discipline, our posture may have been affected. It is imperative that you stand up every few minutes, “straight and tall with your shoulders back. Pull your stomach in and put your weight mostly on the balls of your feet. Keep your head level and let your arms hang naturally. When you stand, keep your feet about shoulder-width apart,” says the yoga expert.

He shares an easy guide on how you can better your posture, starting today. Read on.
