Many people think of yoga purely as the physical, mental, and spiritual practices which started in ancient India. It is that and so much more!
Not many people associate yoga with helping with lower back pain but you would be amazed at how yoga poses can stretch and strengthen your lower back.
I have suffered from lower back problems for years and spent lots of time and money at the chiropractor. I needed to find a more lasting solution that I could manage on my own.
I was introduced to yoga stretches for lower back pain relief and found that it helped over time.
The best thing about doing yoga poses is that anyone can do them. Even though I am active and athletic, many of the poses were difficult at first. But Yoga is not about pushing yourself, it’s about doing what you can at your own pace.
That worked for me!
My back problems have reduced to the point where it rarely bothers me. I include gentle yoga stretches at least twice a week for 20 to 30 minutes.
