7 YouTube Yoga Practices to Finally Relieve and Release Your Back Pain, Tightness, and Tension
When my back is sore, whether it's from hunching at work, a hard workout, or sleeping in some weird, crunched-up position, nothing feels better than rolling out my mat and running through a gentle, soothing yoga sequence. I love going to YouTube for practices like this, because all I have to do is hit play and let an experienced yoga teacher lead me through every posture. It's like being in a class, but from the comfort of your own carpet (or bed).
Ahead are seven of the best YouTube yoga practices we could find, all of them focused on relieving back pain and soreness. A few of the videos I've tried personally, and I'm definitely adding the ones I haven't to my list. Remember that if you have severe pain in your back, it's always best to talk to a doctor before you try yoga or any other form of exercise. And if you experience pain during any posture in a yoga sequence, stop right away. Yoga isn't a cure-all for every sore spot, but if you're looking for some soothing relief for the tightness in your back, it's worth giving these calming practices a try.
