The Best Yoga Exercises For Back Pain

There is much research supporting the theory that proper exercise is the best solution to eliminating back pain. Though exercise weak muscles can be strengthen and retrained. Strong, balanced muscles support the spinal column and helping  to correct any dysfunction. Many turn to yoga for help in relieving back pain. But what yoga exercises or movements are the best for back pain.

Based on my experience the following yoga exercises are the best movements for your aching back. These three exercises are only a suggestion. You should first find a capable instructor. Start with slow gentle movements and avoid any exercise that causes the slightest discomfit.

1. Sun Salutation: Standing upright with feet comfort positioned and balanced bring, your hands in front of your chest in a prayer position. Now take a breathe and slowly raise your arms over your head. If comfortable bend forward and touch the floor with your hands. For beginners I would recommend only bending as far a resting your hands on your knees. You could also just do the first half raising your arms overhead.

2. The Corpse: Lying flat on your back in a relaxed position, arms resting at your sides, palms down, and legs lying naturally, with knees turned out slightly. Next breathe in and out for a few seconds while allowing any tension to leave the body.:

3. The Cat Pose: Starting out on your hands and knees and keeping your back flat, hands under your shoulders and knees directly under your hips. Hold your head loosely looking at the floor. Take a breathe and as you let the breathe out  arch your back and tuck your chin to your chest and tuck your tailbone.underneath. Hold then release going back to the original position.

As stated early only do these exercises with the help of a trained instructor and stop at the first sign of discomfort. Although yoga can help you if you have a bad back their are other programs specifically design for back sufferers.
