Yes.: It's basically a habit, and with any habit, training can change it into a new one.

Aligns passageways: The head forward / "sniffing" position help align the upper / middle / lower air passageways for optimal (/laminar) air flow with minimal effort. In majority of persons in non-diseased state, no significant difference is noticed, but in distressed person working to breathe, can help reduce work a little.

Head posture: Yes indeed. Strengthen neck muscles, practice walking perfectly straight, learn ballet posture, sit straight, concentrate on straight. A good exercise is standing straight against a wall, heels touching, rump touching, upper back touching, and back of head touching. Then push back of your head against the wall as an isometric. Hold it 20 sec. Repeat. Hold it 30 sec. Repeat. Hold it 40 sec. X4
