Back to basics: Yoga for a stronger back
By Yogi Ashwini of Dhyan Foundation.
Back pain can result from poor posture, badly designed furniture, lack of exercise or even an injury.
Yoga is a great way to stretch and strengthen the muscles of your back. It can help maintain good posture, improve circulation and heal injuries. Try these basic postures to relax your muscles and release the tension in your back. Remember that yoga is best practiced under the supervision of an experienced teacher.
Yaan: Lie on your stomach and extend your arms forward. Now keeping your head parallel to the ground raise your upper body and your legs from the thigh. Hold for seven counts and lower down.
