In this post, I provide 9 simple poses to help you take care of your back.
As a yoga teacher I always get the question “how do I get rid of back pain?” There is no simple answer as everyone’s condition is different. However as a hardened athlete who’s had major sports injuries, I have a wealth of practical knowledge that I’d like to share with you.
Core strength is at the core! 🙂 You will hear me say “Engage your core!” in every pose.
Another thing to keep in mind: a lot of back irritation doesn’t stem from the back itself. It’s other tight muscles pulling and throwing the back out of whack.
So if you’re wondering, why Crescent Pose is in here – tight hip flexors – that spells trouble right away! Need to get those hip flexors released.
Why Utthita Hasta Padangusthana? That’s a double whammy! Target your hamstrings, work on stabilizing and strengthening your core as well. And a third benefit – who doesn’t want to work on their balance?
