Back Care Class

This morning I went to the back-care class that is conducted every Saturday at Sunset Yoga. The class is generally taught by Nuvana, but was subbed by .... . I had discussed about the certain poses in my earlier blog to help with lower back ache. Here is a list of other supported poses that help relieve lower back stress in a supported form with belts, blocks and blankets:

1. Adho mukha Viranasa (child pose)
2. Utitha Trikonasana (triangle pose)
3. Vrikshasana (tree pose)
4. Uttanasana (forward bend)
5. Paschim Uttanasana (sitting forward bend)
6. Tadasana (standing / mountain pose)

I will upload some instructional videos on the mechanics of these poses in a supported form. Most of these poses help you strengthen your quads, shoulders, hamstrings, maintain good balance and posture and help relieve pressure on your lower back and help relax those muscles.
