Original Yoga Challenge Day 6: Yoga for Lower Back Pain

Today’s flow is all about taking care of the lower back. It’s super common to have lower back pain which is inconvenient… but the good news is that a lot of times it has a pretty easy fix. Usually we just need to stretch things out and move our bodies in ways we don’t think about throughout our day.

So if you find yourself with tightness or pain in the low back, this may be just the solution you need!

Over to you! What did you think? How did you feel before vs after class? Do you often have discomfort there? Any other best practices you have to share?

    Spinal twists are the best! I love how my body releases every microgram of tension when I’m doing them. Doing yoga each if these past 6 days has been beautiful..can’t believe it has been only these few days. Thank you for this amazing experience!
