12 YOGA POSES TO HELP ALLEVIATE BACK PAIN…

Yoga is an amazing way to help ease back pain but without supervision could cause harm so please do not try any of the above poses unless you have done yoga before. The NHS website has a guide to yoga and says that ‘Dozens of scientific trials of varying quality have been published on yoga and while there’s scope for more rigorous studies on its health benefits, most studies suggest yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance.’

There is also some evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain – depression and stress but they say that most forms of yoga are not strenuous enough (boo hoo) to count towards your 150 minutes of moderate activity, as set out by government guidelines.
