Five Yoga Poses For Lower Back Pain That Benefit the Whole Body

Back pain can be an issue for runners, everyday athletes or something that just comes with age. Luckily there are a few yoga poses that can help alleviate some of that pressure. 

Move Ya Brass' fitness instructor Shanda Domango shared her favorite yoga poses for back pain, noting, "They help you stretch out other parts of your body too. Even though they're predominantly working the lower back, you're also getting a benefit of working other areas of your body that might be tight. Other areas that might be compromised when you're running, as far as dealing with impact. Especially the hips."

The next time you're feeling soreness in your lower back, try these Shanda recommended stretches.
