Whether you're sitting at your desk all day, chasing after your kids or you've got yourself a new "friend" who's particularly active in the bedroom (nice work btw), most of us at one time or another suffer from back problems.

Left untreated, those occasional pains and stiffness can turn into chronic back issues – not good.

Yoga happens to be one of the few exercises  that can actually reverse your back problems. Yoga focuses on strengthening and aligning your spine. Every movement and twist is formulated to increase flexibility, improve spinal fluid flow, and create the proper space needed between your vertebrae. Yoga has succeeded where other practices have failed when it comes to straightening out back problems.

If you haven’t tried yoga yet please do! The benefits are limitless. We promise you’ll be glad you did.

 

THE CAT – COW POSE

This yoga pose (asana), is designed to relax, lengthen, and strengthen the spine. It is great for first thing in the morning to get the kinks out or anytime you feel your back is threatening a revolt.

  •  Get on your hands and knees with your back in a straight / neutral position.
  • Inhale through your nose as you arch your back slowly, raising your head and opening your chest.
  • As you exhale through your nose, slowly round your back tucking your chin to your chest looking at your belly.
  • Repeat the above movements 8 – 10 times slowly

Doing this twice a day (morning and evening) will have your back feeling freer and keep you from that walker you were thinking of borrowing from your Great Aunt Gertie – you know, the one with the fuzzy dice on the handlebar?
