7 Amazing Yoga Poses to Remove Your Back Pain

3)Downward Facing Dog — 1 to 3 minutes

 

“Sometimes, we feel lower back pains because the backs of our legs are so tight,” Tyler explains. Down Dog is a great way to stretch out your hamstrings and calves. If you’re extra tight, you can bend your knees a little bit to make the stretch more comfortable.

  • From Child’s Pose, keep your hands on the floor, sit up on your knees, and then lift your butt and press back into Downward Facing Dog.
  • Spread your fingers wide. Work on straightening your legs and lowering your heels toward the ground.
  • Relax your head between your arms, and direct your gaze through your legs or up toward your belly button.
  • Hold for one to three minutes.
