Release your low back pain with this simple, guided stretch. This is my “go-to” pose for low back pain relief.

Props needed:
– 1 belt (any pants, belt, scarf, or makeshift strap will do)
– 1 cushion (optional).

This stretch has it’s roots in yin yoga principals, but no yoga experience is required. This is easy and appropriate for all levels.

I’ve noticed more and more as I teach yoga that my low back is constantly tweaked and in pain. I think this is because I get up, sit down to demonstrate something and pop up again so quickly. I’m trying to be more mindful in all my movements and transitions. Until I master that, this low back stretch has been a life saver. I try to do it after every class I teach.

Also, this is super juicy and nice to do before bed 🙂

Let me know what you think of this low back stretch in the comments. Did it relieve your low back pain at all?

Warning: Do not join me for this stretch if you have an herniated disk in your low back.
