Yoga is a great way to relax your mind and your body. In fact, many yoga poses can help to alleviate and prevent the occurrence of back pain.
This video provides an overview on yoga poses to reduce the risk of back pain. The most important thing to do when starting any type of exercise is to warm up your spine and lower back. This can be done with the cat-cow poses. Start by stacking your shoulders over your wrists with your hips over your knees. While tucking your toes, inhale and look up so that your back is slightly inverted; when exhaling, round out your spine and spread your shoulder blades wide.
