Yoga for back health

February 7, 2014

You won’t feel old if your spine stays flexible.  You will feel better, think better, and have more energy when you have a spine that is strong, flexible, and pain free. To have a healthy back and spine, you need core strength and flexibility in the hamstrings as well as toned and strong back muscles. With these attributes you then need to continue to maintain good posture in daily life.    Regular Yoga can help you achieve all this.

  • Yoga helps increase strength in very specific muscle groups and works to strengthen all major muscle groups that support the spine.

  • The stretching postures in yoga increase blood flow to the tissues that support the spine, improving the health of the intervertebral discs and muscles along the spine.

  • Yoga increases flexibility in your shoulders and hips, which reduces pressure and load on your spine

  • Yoga increases flexibility of the muscles in your back and along your spine, allowing your spine to rotate properly.

  • Connecting breath with movement improves body awareness, making you more conscious of movements that may contribute to back pain.

  • The "spine lengthening" poses in yoga promote good posture and proper alignment of the vertebrae. When the spine lengthens, it naturally moves towards correct alignment. Having proper posture ensures that you are not placing undue stress upon your back.
