Yoga exercises that help you relieve and prevent low back pain
Downward Facing Dog Pose or ‘Adho Mukha Svanasana’
We stand on all fours, with our hands resting on the ground and our fingers spread, parallel to the shoulders, and our feet hip-width apart. Stand on the balls of your feet and slowly push your pelvis upwards, stretching your arms and legs. The legs and body should end in a V shape , with the feet and hands resting on the floor.
Puppy pose or ‘Uttana Shishosana’
We stand on all fours on the mat, with our fingers spread apart and firmly resting on the floor. We bring the toes inward so that the hips fall midway to the heels. Finally, we try to bring the forehead to the ground , while squeezing the shoulder blades.
Cobra pose or ‘Bhujangasana’
We lie face down on the mat, with the arms slightly apart from the body and the palms resting on the floor just below the shoulders. We stretch our legs and support the insteps on the mat. We breathe in hard and push ourselves with our arms to raise the body from the waist up. Finally, we stretch our arms while doing a back bend. (Exercises)
