One of the reasons I love to do yoga is because it provides some great relief for any back pain I have. If you are like me, there are some days my back aches whether it is from bad posture or a bad night’s sleep. Here are some of my favorite yoga poses that help me to relieve any back pain I have.
Downward-Facing Dog – It is a great total body stretch that targets your low back.
Child’s Pose - This is a simple yoga pose, but it feels wonderful when you do it! It may be a peaceful and relaxing pose for some, but it is an active stretch for your back.
Pigeon Pose -This pose may be difficult at first for some to do, but it is a great pose that stretches out your hip muscles that may be the cause of your back pain.
Triangle Pose – A great pose to strengthen your back and leg muscles.
Cat to Cow Pose - A classic yoga sequence that loosens your back muscles. It is a great pose to use a warm-up.
Upward-Facing Dog – This pose opens up your abdominal muscles and engages your back muscles
Foward Fold - This move stretches your hamstrings and back muscles while also providing relief and tension from your shoulders.
