Yoga poses to relieve back pain

Yoga poses to relieve back pain

Yoga is a mind-body therapy that is frequently suggested for the treatment of both back pain and the associated stress. Your body can get stronger and more relaxed with the right poses you learn in yoga classes in Sydney. You can become more conscious of your body by doing yoga, even for a little while each day. This will assist you in identifying your stress points and abnormalities. By being aware of this, you may organize and regulate yourself. There are certain yoga poses recommended by specialists to relieve back pain and we will discuss those in this article.


Keeping your weight in your heels and your legs slightly wider than hip-distance apart, raise your hands to your chest in a position of prayer. Squat as low as you can, keeping your knees bent and your hips pressed back until your glutes are only a few inches off the ground.

To maintain your elbows in line with your toes, press them toward the inside of your knees. Lean your tailbone towards the floor and raise your chest to elongate your spine while taking calm, deep breaths. Repeat three or four times, then stand after holding the squat for 15 to 20 seconds.

Cat-Cow Pose 

Taking a deep breath, look up, draw your chest forward, hollow out your lower back, and drive your tailbone upward while standing on all fours with your palms beneath your shoulders your knees beneath your hips and your back flat. Reverse the motion as you exhale, tucking your tailbone under and arching your back toward the ceiling like a cat. Lower your head between your arms. For three to five cycles, keep switching between Cow and Cat Pose with each inhale and exhale.

Downward Dog with Foot Pedal

Tuck your toes under after inhaling and assuming the Cow Pose (head and chest up, low back flattened, tailbone reaching up). Exhale by pushing through your toes, raising your knees off the ground, thrusting your hips upward, extending your elbows and knees, and cradling your head between your arms. Your figure ought to resemble an inverted “V.” Try to reach your heels toward the floor by pressing through your palms and the balls of your feet (they don’t have to touch). Let your head dangle freely.

Start by bending one knee while straightening the other to achieve a more profound stretch for your calf, and then switch between the legs. 

Child’s Pose

From Downward Dog, you may easily move into Child’s Pose by dropping your pelvis until you are in a high plank posture. Keep your torso straight while you balance on your hands and the balls of your feet. Spread your knees wide and place your feet so they touch the ground while standing on a high plank.

Once you are sitting on your heels with your arms resting on the ground in front of you, press your hips back. As you allow your hips to get heavy and sink deeper into your heels, extend your spine by reaching your palms farther forward. 

Extended Triangle

Step with your feet spaced around 4 feet apart and point your left toe outward at an angle and turn your right toe forward. Raise your arms so that your palms are facing downward and parallel to the floor. Lean forward and bring your arm and torso forward by hinging at the right hip. Place your hand on the floor, a yoga block, or your leg. Raise your left arm in the direction of the ceiling.
