In any case, with our portrayals, and potentially some web looks of yoga locales for pictures of every pose, you ought to have the capacity to learn enough to in any event have the capacity to practice a percentage of the poses yourself at home. The following are a percentage of the best poses for back pain. Since the objective is for back pain alleviation, as opposed to exercise, you are not required to hold the poses for more than 5 – 15 seconds, contingent upon how it feels. The utilization of a yoga mat, or some other delicate surface, is profoundly prescribed when you are performing these asanas or yoga stances.

The Shoulder-Stand (Sarvangasana)

  • A well-known treatment for any ailment that is very easy to do, and will remind you of things you did as a child. Please be sure to use your own judgement, depending on how severe your back pain is.
  • Start by lying on your back on a yoga mat, or something like a thick blanket spread out on the floor.
  • Raise your legs slowly, and lift your trunk, hips and legs to a vertical position.
  • Rest your elbows immovably on the floor and backing your back with both hands
  • Raise your legs until they are vertical. Press your chin against your chest.
  • The back of your neck and the back part of your head and your shoulders ought to touch the floor as you execute this pose.
  • Breathe in for 5 seconds, hold it for 5 seconds, and then breathe out for 5 seconds.
  • You do not want to let your body shake.

The next pose for you to attempt is the shoulder stands opposite pose.

MatsyasanaFish Pose

  • Start by lying on your back on a yoga mat, or something like a thick blanket spread out on the floor.
  • Stretch your legs and keep the palms of your hands down under the thighs.
  • Raise your chest with the help of your elbows and, bending your neck backwards as much as possible, rest on the top of your head.

Sethu Bhandasana – Bridge Pose

  • From the Shoulder Stand position, stretch your legs and slowly touch the floor with the feet, which will bend the spine in the opposite direction.

Recommended duration for the Yoga asanas

The proper ratio for the three poses below is 6:1:2.  That means you will hold the shoulder-stand 6 times longer than you hold the bridge pose and 3 times longer than you hold the fish pose.  This ratio also means you will hold the fish pose twice as long as you hold the bridge pose.  If you do not wish to do the bridge pose, then you can use a 2:1 ration between the shoulder-stand pose and the fish pose, but only if you do the shoulder stand pose for no longer than a few seconds.

It requires a lot of detail to properly explain yoga for back pain relief because I want to be sure you are well informed.  Because of this, I will include the descriptions of the next group of poses in part 2 of this article, but it is you should try these poses first.  You can also do well by starting from the poses listed in part 2 if you prefer.
