3 Yoga Poses to Help Ease Back Pain, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

Yoga has become an immensely popular activity for those looking to improve their fitness, flexibility, and balance. As a meditative practice and form of physical exercise, it can also help aid in stress relief. Those who experience back pain, in particular, may benefit from certain yoga poses, as it helps stretch and strengthen the spine.

Excellent Yoga Beginners’ Poses

1. Downward-Facing Dog

To enter the downward-facing dog position, begin on your hands and knees, with your shoulders directly over your wrists and knees over your heels. Keep your neck straight and look straight at the floor. Now, tuck the toes and lift the hips into the air. Let the head dangle loosely as you breathe deeply and bring your heels as close as possible to the floor. This pose stretches the spine and strengthens the core, lower back, and hamstrings.

2. Cat & Cow Pose

Inhale as you lift your chest and tailbone toward the ceiling, then exhale as you arch your back, pull back your shoulder blades, and drop your head into a loose position. Now, repeat the two postures repeatedly to stretch the spine and hips.

3. Child’s Pose

Child’s pose is often utilized as a resting pose in yoga practices and aids in relaxation. To enter child’s pose, begin on your hands and knees. Then, spread the knees apart with your big toes touching. Now, slowly lower your torso and forehead to the floor, extending your arms out in front of you and placing your palms on the mat. This gentle pose effectively stretches the hips, thighs, and muscles in the back.
