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.
Ardh Shalabh (right leg):Now, extend your left arm forward and the right one backwards. Lift the right leg and hold for seven counts before bringing it back down.
