The posture of happiness

Look after your back for a happier life

Yoga for back care

When someone’s unhappy, their posture shows it. Body language expresses our mood and attitude, reckons author and posture expert Dr. Steven Weiniger. It’s common sense to know a friend is feeling down when her posture is slumping over, he says. But new research shows it’s a two way street: how you hold your body affects your mental attitude, and your state of mind will change how you hold your body.

“Living with tech means posture can suffer as we sit, type and text for hours each day,” he says. “Researchers are finding significant health consequences, which is one reason posture is trending. Another is the explosion of ergonomic products from standing desks to upscale mattresses to vibrating shirts and posture apps to make us look and age better, or just avoid back and neck pain, by improving posture.”

About OM Yoga Magazine

Welcome to the August issue of OM Yoga & Lifestyle magazine. We hope you’re having a great summer so far. In this issue we’ve got a couple of special reports, including a look at naked yoga and why people are loving it. Are you brave enough to try it? Liberating or exhibitionist: we’d love to know your thoughts! We’ve also got a yoga for back care report inside, as well as plenty of other goodies too. For starters, we’re kicking off a new five part series - A Brief History of Yoga in the West - where you can discover how the yoga you now enjoy reached your home town all the way from India. There’s lots of practical yoga as well, including our regular 360º Yoga anatomy academy and a great sequence for a head, neck and shoulders release. There’s something for everyone in this issue to keep you inspired on and off the mat throughout the month. Happy reading!
