This sequence will help increase spinal awareness, which is a large part of slouchy posture.
Standing Forward Fold
Here's how to do Cat-Cow:
Start on all fours. Your wrists should be stacked under your elbows, which are stacked under your shoulders. Keep your fingers spread against the ground for increased stability, and keep your neck neutral.
Begin the Cat phase: As you exhale, tuck your tailbone under using your abdominal muscles to push your spine toward the ceiling, making the shape of a Halloween cat. Lengthen your neck and allow your head to reach toward your chest so your ears come down by your biceps.
On the in breath, "swoop and scoop" the pelvis into the Cow position so your belly is dropped toward the floor. Lift your chin and chest, and gaze up toward the ceiling. Draw your shoulders away from your ears.
