Are you looking for bedtime yoga to ease your back pain?
It’s no secret, our bodies are under a lot of stress. Whether we’re standing constantly or working in uncomfortable shoes, we are taking on stress.
Even as you’re reading this article, you may be sitting down with your shoulders hunched over and back sloped, feeling a little discomfort.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Many spend $50 billion each year to try to alleviate it.
While you shouldn’t put a cost to your health, it doesn’t have to be so expensive to help heal some issues. Yoga is one of the most effective ways to help relieve back pain and it can also ease potential stress on your wallet.
Just by staying in each pose for only a few breaths a day, you’re on way to help strengthen, stretch and improve circulation to the spine.
Here are some of the best poses that’ll help benefit your back.
Bedtime Yoga: Balasana (Child’s Pose)
Probably one of the most loved restorative poses, balasana stretches the muscles of the lower back, as well as the hips, thighs and ankles. It also promotes flexibility and stress relief, releasing lower back tension as your back returns to the small natural curve.
How to do:
Start on your hands and knees in tabletop position. Inhale and spread your knees hip-width distance apart as you bring your big toes to touch.
