As a Yoga Therapist, I work a lot with folks who suffer from Back Pain. Because of our more sedentary lifestyle, and with all the desk work we do, our back muscles can become weakened and this can lead to injury.
There are a couple simple prone backbends we can add to our regular routine that can make a big difference to the strength of our back muscles, improve our posture and hopefully prevent back injuries.
I have found both in my own back health and in my Yoga Therapy sessions with clients that Baby Cobra Pose is really effective at strengthening the muscles of the back.
Although this pose can feel quite challenging when you are new to it, be patient with yourself it will get easier with time. When practicing this pose it’s important that you only work within a range of motion that won’t leave you sore the next day.
In the video below I’ll walk you through Baby Cobra Pose step by step.
If you know someone who suffers from back pain please share this post with them.
