Lower Back Pain – Get Relief

posted in: Back Pain, Yoga 3

Lower Back Pain is unfortunately pretty common. It can be challenging to find gentle yet effective poses to help relieve lower back pain without causing a flare up.

This lying twist is one of my favorites for times when my lower back is feeling tender or vulnerable.

If you deal with chronic back pain, it’s important that you only move within a range of motion that feels safe to you and won’t make you sore tomorrow.

So, your movements might be much smaller than what you see me do in this video. It’s important to honor where you are today.

In the video below, I’ll walk you through this twist reclined Deer pose often called ‘windshield wipers.’

Happy Practicing!

    I love that twist. It always undoes the “knot”.

    As always, thank you.
