Help loosen tight muscles and joints using these workouts on your rest days. These alleviate all kinds of stress! Great for competitive athletes and even desk jockeys at the workplace.Back pain is a common ailment that affects most people at some point in their life. It normally feels like an ache, tension or stiffness in your back. The pain can be triggered by bad posture while sitting for long hours in an office, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. Backache occurs most often in the lower back, although it can be felt anywhere along your spine, from your neck down to your hips. Practicing yoga has been shown to relieve back pain. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, a recent study has determined that weekly yoga classes can significantly reduce back pain and improve back movement. A number of yoga teachers have developed yoga sequences designed specifically for sufferers of back pain with a specific focus on target muscle groups. Prenatal Stress & Pain Relief by Jaime McFaden
