But you can counteract this by doing some yoga for better posture as outlined in this YogaTailor infographic created specifically for you .

Why bear all that burden when you can prevent it by doing yoga for better posture?
The first few poses in this infographic are so simple and easy, you can virtually do them right inside your office. No fancy equipment needed. Just your chair and a table will do.

Do you have a good or bad posture?
Some people do not even pay attention to their posture until they feel the ill effects of their bad habits. The best way to check is to stand in front of a mirror. Turn sideways and take note of what you see. Better yet, ask someone to take your picture. Now check the area in this infographic that says, “Difference between good and bad posture”.
