A 2011 study by Dr. Joan Vernikos documented in Sitting Kills, Moving Heals (Quill Driver Books) reinforces the critical importance of developing “Postural Fitness” to offset the ill health effects associated with prolonged sitting and a sedentary lifestyle which include:
- Sluggishness, fatigue, loss of stamina
- Collapse of joints, muscles, organs
- Poor circulation, diminished vitality, depression
- Diminished lifespan
Yoga is the best antidote to poor posture and a sedentary lifestyle.
