Soothe Your Tired Back With Yoga

If you’re to look at the lifestyle of a quintessential working person with a nine to five job, the answer to why backaches are becoming increasingly common will come easily to you. Take anybody and you’ll realize that this lifestyle requires a lot of sitting. Physiologically speaking, this prolonged sitting causes the Hamstring and Iliopsoas muscles to shorten, causing strain on the lower back.

All you need to do is incorporate some simple and relaxing yoga exercises into your otherwise taxing schedule.

Here are four easy yoga exercises that you should make a regular practice:

Please note, however, if you’re suffering from a slip disc or any other back injury, it is strongly advised that you consult your physician before practicing any of the above exercises.
