The yoga expert shared several, easy-to-do exercises that can help your posture and resolve back pain issues. She also mentioned that “incorrect posture, hunched shoulders, lack of exercise, age, etc. are some of the most common causes of back pain.”
Here are the exercises that the celebrity yoga expert shared-
Cat Cow Pose- To perform this pose, you will need to crouch down on all fours, take deep breaths, and stretch your back to the fullest extent possible.
Bridge Pose- True to its name, the bridge pose requires you to lay down on your back and thrust your hips upwards. Hold the position and lock your hand underneath your hips.
Camel Pose- The camel pose can be performed by sitting down on your knees and touching the balls of your feet. Bend backwards to do so.
Cobra Pose- The cobra pose also helps provide relief to the back and spine. It can be performed by reclining yourself on a flat surface. Then bend backwards so that you feel your back stretch.
Half Lord of the Fish Pose- This pose will enable you to stretch your entire back and torso at the same time. Begin by sitting down normally, and take the help of your knee to twist your entire torso as much as you can.
