YOGA FOR A HAPPY & HEALTHY BACK

FEATURED BACKCARE VIDEO


Loren M Fishman MD and I share key principles and a step-by-step practice for this wonderful "go-to" pose for lower back tension, pain management, tight hamstrings and hips. Safe for scoliosis, herniation, and ankylosing spondylitis!

 Dr Fishman offers a special short introduction for Bamboo Spine.

Key Benefits:

  • Learn to work with the limb without affecting the stability of the spine.

  • Increase range of motion using the arms and legs with a spine neutral.

  • Stretch the hamstrings

  • Open outer hips and IT band

  • Have a block and strap for your practice

 

BONUS HOME PRACTICE!

You'll need a second strap for the following variation!

BENEFITS OF EXTRA STRAP: 

- Enhanced relief for lower back pain
- Creates length and evenness in pelvis and side body
- Can ease hip flexor strain
- Safe for lumbar herniation

 

PRACTICE INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Take a looped second strap, place it first over the heel of the leg extended on the ground.

  2. Take the other end of the loop, place it around the other vertical leg thigh, low down near the hip crease - the belt crosses the body diagonally between grounded leg's foot and the vertical legs thigh.

  3. Position the strap buckle to be near the outside of vertical outer hip or below buttocks (so it doesn't pinch your flesh when you tighten).

  4. Make sure the end of the strap points away from you, toward the feet.

  5. Tighten the strap away from the hip crease of the vertical leg. This action externally rotates the outer thigh, evening pelvis and creating length in the side body.
