Mountain Pose

The mountain pose will help you align your back, which will give you great posture. It's so easy to do that you won't even feel like you're doing yoga at all. The only thing it really requires you to do is stand up straight and move your thighs and tailbone a bit. You'll ace the pose the first time you attempt it, guaranteed.

2

Cobra Pose

This pose will help you strengthen and straighten your back. Although it requires you to stretch further back than you're probably used to, it shouldn't make your muscles ache. Just don't become overwhelmed by all of the other poses mentioned in this training video, because you don't actually need to know them. As long as you watch the woman in the video closely, you'll be able to master the cobra pose, even if you're a novice.

Child’s Pose

This is a super simple yoga pose that anyone can do, even if they haven't exercised for an entire year. All you're really doing is resting on your knees and leaning your head down onto the floor. With the right music, you could even fall asleep in this pose. It's that easy to master.

4

Lizard Pose

This pose requires quite a bit of stretching, but it will do more than improve your posture. It will also help open your hips and strengthen your quads. If you've never considered yourself to be flexible, that will change after you attempt this pose for a few days.

5

Bridge Pose

This pose will improve your posture, strengthen your glutes, and increase the strength in your hips. Since it helps you in various areas, it's one of the most important yoga poses to learn. Plus, it's also one of the easiest positions to get into. The challenging part is keeping your hips up in the air for longer and longer each time you attempt the pose.

Tree Pose

This pose will help you with more than your posture. It'll also help you with your balance. If you're having trouble staying balanced on one leg, then you should try picking a spot on the wall to focus on. Keeping your eyes glued to the same spot should help keep your leg glued to the same spot.

7

Wheel Pose

You don't want to hurt yourself, so make sure you stretch before you attempt this move. Although it starts out pretty simply, you're eventually going to be pushing your body into a strange position, so if you're not flexible, don't force your body to bend too much. You should start out small and push yourself to bend further and further every day, so you don't end up pulling something.

Good posture can make you seem more confident and attractive, which is why it's so important to master these yoga poses. Which one is your favorite from this list?

I agree with @msabine. Many girls now days are kill their back because they're trying make they're but look bigger by curving their backs to extremes. Signs of a good posture wouldn't really show your but sticking out.

Well,actually,"keeping your booty out" is a sign of bad posture.A good posture is when your spine forms a straight line from your neck to your hips,not when it's curved at the bottom...

@Adorekaayjay Sadly,there is no way to make yourself stand straight "automatically",boo boo :c At least,that's what i've learned through my (not exactly big) yoga experience.If you want your back to be straight and have a good posture,you have to use your back muscles to keep i that way.It takes some effort,but over time,you're going to find it less tiring to do so.Yeah...i hope i helped you c:

Cool thanks for the yoga

A wheel pose is also called a bridge-up. I can do headstand poses, but not handstand ones.

Also I heard balancing a book on your head and walking around or placing your whole backside (like heels, back of head, extra) flat against a wall is a good way to improve your posture.

I have really bad posture, I can fix it if I notice it while walking or sitting but I want to automatically know to stand up straight. Since in my head it doesn't comprehend. @MSabine what would you recommend me practice to get my spine in accustom to being straight all the time?

Unless you have a big butt.

OK I do Ashtanga yoga and it is so good for your body. It makes you strong and you won't believe what your body can do until you try it. It makes you look Oh so sexy it makes you feel like your mind is blessed with food thoughts. You get your confidence intact as well. It trims your body as well as you spine muscles and basically every thing on your body .so try it and it is never too late to do toga so no excuses now do it look hit and by next summer you will what I mean. You will look hot to trot!hahaha

The wheel is my favourite pose by the way. Love it and I don't know how to describe but it is just brilliant. Like I said it is incredible what the body can do
