Yoga For Kyphosis

Understanding Kyphosis and Its Causes

Kyphosis, characterized by excessive forward curvature of the spine and hunching in the upper back, can be a result of poor posture habits and a sedentary lifestyle. Prolonged sitting in front of computers further increases the risk of developing this condition. If you’re dealing with kyphosis or roundback, you may have tight muscles in your upper chest and weak muscles in your upper back.

Preventing Kyphosis: The Role of Yoga

To counteract these effects and promote a healthier spine, incorporating yoga into your routine can be highly beneficial. Yoga poses specifically designed to prevent kyphosis focus on opening the chest and strengthening the upper back muscles. By practicing these poses regularly, you can improve your postural awareness and contribute to a more aligned and balanced body.
